Charlie Chiarelli
Experienced Online Educator

I am a retired High school Computer Science and Mathematics Teacher from Canada. I taught for 35 years, I have a BMath degree from the University of Waterloo.

I was a frequent speaker at educational conferences (ECOO) and seminars . Most recently my talks focused on E-Learning and the future of education (Flipping the Classroom).

I was the school webmaster and served on a number of school board committee , recently advising my school board (Hamilton Wentworth Catholic District School Board) on its online learning direction. I was also the contest coordinator for the Annual Programming Contest for the past 15 years.

For the last 7 years before I retired I was in the unique position of teaching most of my computer science classes entirely online using the D2L LMS. Because of low enrollment and lack of qualified computer science teachers I became the "board" teacher. So my virtual class was made up of students from various schools in the region.

I am not a brilliant software engineer trying to teach programming. I am a high school computer science teacher that has taught teenagers for over 35 years. So I think my perspective and sensibilities are quite different than the typical online instructor. I feel this gives me a greater appreciation for what beginners need to learn and how it should be presented. I hope you agree and find my courses rewarding.
