Teaching experience:
Both one off sessions and permanent posts have included work on undergradute courses since 2004, such as Film Production, TV Drama, Digital Film and Screen Arts and Animation at the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham, as well as sessions for staff members on the Film Production course at the University for the Creative Arts, Maidstone, Kent.  

Teaching has now expanded abroad with a two day workshop session for young people at the Samsen Kulturhaus in Kristiansand, Norway, May 2012 and 2013

"In May, 2012, Charis jumped on a plane and held a two day course for Filmverkstedet, a youth group I run at Samsen Kulture Center in Norway. This is a diverse group in both age and skill, and she was able to teach them all while not loosing anybody in the more tricky technical bits. She is highly knowledgeable and professional, balancing theory with exercises brilliantly. Not only that, she also tailored the course specifically to our current film, leaving us not just with the theory, but also a specific plan of attack for this project.

The effects of the course are felt strongly. Not only have four of the members been inspired to take on the role of sound recorders and designers, and really dig into the necessary software, but the rest of the group has also gained a new awareness and respect for sound as part of film. They have started incorporating it much more as a story telling device, as well as caring deeply about its quality. As a result of this course we have completely changed our approach to the way we use sound."
