I am Cassily Charles, Academic Literacy Coordinator in the Professional Development team of the Research Office. I provide programs and resources for Higher Degree by Research candidates, such as workshops, consultations, writing groups and bootcamps.
I completed a Master of Education, a BA (Honours)in Linguistics and a Grad Cert in Higher Education at the University of Sydney. I have been working since 2000 in universities in Australia and overseas in both academic and professional roles in English linguistics, academic literacy and related fields. In 2016 I was awarded a Citation for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning by the Department of Education and Training at the Australian Awards for University Teaching. I love living on Wiradjuri country and am currently enrolled in CSU’s Grad Cert in Wiradjuri Language, Culture and Heritage.
