In education we know everyone has different learning styles. Some are visual learners while others are auditory learners, read and write learners, and kinesthetic learners.
There’s not a “one size fits all” method to learning which is why what Taiwanese teacher Chuan-Bin Chung (鍾全斌) is doing is something special.
Rather than instructing his students to read the material and sit through lectures, he’s decided to draw the descriptions from the textbook on a chalkboard. Mind you this probably wouldn’t work if Chung’s drawing skills weren’t so stellar.
Chung teaches illustration, Anatomy of Arts and Painting Skills at the Department of Visual Communication Design at Shu-Te University (樹德科大) in Taiwan.
Chung said, “Yes, we have a textbook. But we don’t read it, we draw it. Students, majoring in this area, cannot learn by just reading the pictures on books. Instead, we learn while drawing something. In my classes, students have to draw what I am demonstrating on the chalkboard.”
