Exploring the Experiential Reading Differences between Visual and Written Research Papers

Visual or pictorial research papers have emerged in recent years in academic conferences as a non-written archival contribution. Dual Coding Theory teaches us that visual knowledge is distinct from written knowledge and is arguably a universal language (Dreyfuss, 1984), with the ability to communicate complex ideas with clarity, precision, and efficiency (Tufte, 2001). This study explores the reading experience differences between a visual and written research paper containing identical content from design, engineering, and business disciplines. Reading experiences were assessed using a ‘think, feel, and do’ survey, and comprehension was assessed with a quiz. Participants tracked time spent reading and how many times they revisited information. Visual papers provide an improved overall reading experience. Quiz comprehension results were mixed, showing no advantage of one modality over the other. Participants reading visual papers revisited information twice as much as those reading written papers. Designers, engineers, and businesspeople were favourably united in their visual paper reading experience ratings but were not on their written paper ratings.

This visual paper follows the sketchnoting experience of a group of first-year honours students as part of a research seminar. The paper shows an overview of sketchnoting, what it is and how to use it, shares examples of lectures and study notes, and visually discusses its benefits and over-all lessons learned and take aways.

Online Comprehensive Teaching on Digital Hand-drawing Taking the course of “Hand-drawn Design Expression” as an example

Shandong University of Art and Design, China, People's Republic of

Abstract: Digital hand-drawing techniques have been widely used in the international design field. Under the influence of the Covid-19 epidemic, online education has become an important way of teaching and learning. Based on the online platform, the teacher’s screen sharing combined with digital hand-drawing can not only analyse and demonstrate the principle and process of drawing to the students more intuitively but also tutor and evaluate the course work. In the online teaching design and teaching process of “Hand-drawn Design Expression” course, the application of digital hand-drawing live allows students to learn the course content more directly and visually, and then mix and match with POWERPOINT live lectures and paper hand-drawn live lectures together to form a new mode of online teaching of design education courses.
