Having an interest in a topic, as well as maintaining this interest and curiosity forms the foundation of any early exploration of a topic, and deepening interest in a subject. This applies to both students, as well teachers. Enjoying the process of learning, and teaching, helps to maintain engagement with, and continued study of the material. The more one knows of a topic, the more one is able to identify links between different threads within a subject area; and recognize where theory can be applied in practice, or explain practice.
