    Teaching is a fine art between facilitation and subject expertise. Learning takes place through collaboration,research, and experiential engagement. Learning styles research is essential in the varied ways teaching and learning occurs. Using technology is an important addition to learning today as whatever roles graduates play in the future, computers will be a significant part of their experiences. Distance education is a growing avenue for education and will only increase as time goes on. When working with adults, it is important to present the big picture first, then work task by task to accomplish the objectives. In working with younger persons, the big picture does not play as significant a factor in learning settings. With adult learners, setting the stage with the end goal facilitates the step-by-step learning that takes place in the individual learning activities.
