Impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic on Taiwan’s Art Education


COVID-19 has caused a global pandemic crisis. The pandemic presented society with numerous changes and issues due to the shift in lifestyles, among which is the greatly impacted school education. To receive a complete range of educational resources without contacting other groups in the population, many curriculums were transformed to online learning using technological applications and incorporation.

Given the impact of the pandemic on Taiwan being relatively controlled than other countries, on-campus classes remain the primary approach in school education. However, an outbreak of cluster infection in Taiwan this May worsened the epidemic crisis. The Ministry of Education urgently announced the halt of all on-campus classes, therefore forcefully changed Taiwan’s model of education.

With students’ practice with actual materials being emphasized in teaching art curriculum, and the provision of software and hardware being relied upon, art curriculums face greater challenges to adopt distance learning.

Other than considering ways to use online learning resources to reach integrity in educational content, teachers also need to enhance abilities in applying technologies and designing curriculums, when different approaches and concepts are required to make adjustments and trials, especially regarding class and curriculum management.

This qualitative research was used to study a public junior high school and a public high school in Taiwan with interview and data collection. Intends to grasp a picture of the forms and model of art curriculum in Taiwan at secondary education levels during this pandemic to explore and reflect the possibilities for art education in the post-pandemic era.
