Ingrid Singer MSc (1974) has been a junior researcher at the Research group Speech and Language Therapy: Participation through communication since 2014. Within this research group, she has been working on her doctoral research into the communicative self-reliance of children with language development disorders (TOS) since 2018.
As a lecturer-researcher, she hopes to improve the participation possibilities of children with TOS. She has experience with both quantitative and qualitative research methods, including participatory approaches and is particularly attracted to the idea of translating knowledge into practically applicable products. She is also interested in the valorisation of (speech-language) research results. This fits in well with her background in communication science, psychology and speech therapy.
"There is little use for knowledge that remains stuck on a shelf somewhere"
In 2019 and 2020 she will be devoting her teaching hours to a project for educational innovation. Thanks to a Comenius teaching grant, she will be developing a practice management game together with students, fellow lecturers and speech therapists, in which ethics and quality are brought in relation with entrepreneurship in healthcare.
