Teaching is Learning
When I teach I learn how to most effectively share my knowledge. This entails revising and increasing my expertise on the subject I teach. So in order to teach well, I have to keep on learning, I have to constantly update my knowledge, to keep it fresh and interesting.
Learning is Teaching
When I learn, when I discover something new, I get the urge to pass on my newly acquired knowledge to someone who doesn't yet know what I have discovered. Now learning becomes teaching.
Is there a word for the complete circular process that teaching and learning is all about?
Discovery / learning + sharing / teaching / explaining = ?
