FEATURE: Lecturer inspires students to learn by using comics

By Chen Yi-ching and Stacy Hsu  /  Staff reporter, with staff writer

In light of the course’s success, Tsai recently applied similar teaching techniques to a new course, “Movies and International Relations,” which is also extremely popular among students.

In an effort to draw students’ attention toward international relations and shake off stereotypes created by Hollywood movies, Tsai screens an array of international and alternative movies in the class.

“The purpose of teaching is to pass on knowledge to future generations and the key to fulfilling that purpose lies in the tools employed in teaching,” Tsai said.

“Whatever approaches educators use, they must attract students’ attention, before they can eventually instill knowledge in them,” he added.
