Singh's teaching philosophy combines the idea of scholarly research with pedagogy. It percolates the importance of scholarly research right at the core of an undergraduate class-room and encourages these bright students to do what we as academics do: “Actively expand our intellectual horizons and contribute to our academic fields by conducting scholarly research and sharing the research findings in academic conferences and peer-reviewed journals.” Several of his students have pursued scholarly research, which has lead to academic conference presentations and forthcoming publications.
