Classroom teaching is one of the most important aspects and links to assure quality in higher education. Although there have been some theoretical discussions and research by Chinese scholars about how to enhance the quality of classroom teaching in higher education, the experimental research of quality assurance in teaching is rarely seen. Based on an exploration of the teaching-learning methods of the presentation model, this article will provide evidence that interactive teaching styles, especially Presentation Teaching Methods, are very efficient in improving the quality of arts classroom teaching in higher education. It will analyze the quality and quantity of the empirical knowledge, which includes consciously challenging authority, academic research competencies of critical reading, critical writing and some practical abilities in finding, analyzing, solving problems and team work. Finally, it will provide some suggestions for quality assurance in classroom teaching in higher education.
