Ask Charlie suggests personalised recommendations for teaching techniques and strategies based on class size, discipline, assessment types, and other parameters.

Social

Ask Charlie allows users to share their experience with specific teaching strategies with other users, and to contact experienced colleagues for advice.

Research

Ask Charlie is the outcome from a one-year seed project, developed at the University of Sydney and funded through the Australian Government Office for Learning and Teaching.

What it offers

Ask Charlie combines student evaluation of teaching results with unit of study information, such as class size, discipline, and assessment modes, to display personal recommendations for teaching resources. Users can attach notes to resources, bookmark them for later reading, and discuss them with the community. It brings together teaching resources from around the web, along with a number of case studies and video testimonials developed at the University of Sydney.
