something I’ve never understood

Let’s say a particular college class is made up of 20 19-year-old students who know nothing about the subject of the class, and one 45-year-old professor who has studied that subject for his entire life. I would think that the best way to conduct the class would be for the professor to tell the 19-year-olds some of the things he’s learned. But no, the way it’s done is for the 19-year-olds to sit around talking about the subject they know nothing about while the professor sits, nods, and gives everyone As. This is called “learning styles.” I don’t understand.
