What is the relationship between “teaching and learning”?

The relationship between teaching and learning is very close, so close that one does not exist without the other. It is a relationship of continuous flow of ideas, experiences, knowledge, paradigms, personalities and energy. These relationships can take place within a person, or between 2 or more entities, including 2 or more persons or between a person and an object. Teaching and learning happen at the same time. In order to teach we need to be open to learn and unlearn. We teach by example, by observation, by repetition, by revisiting the experiences, creating opportunities for practice and scaffolding. We learn the same way.
