Welcome to the wiki supporting the Charting Tools developed by the Caledonian Academy at Glasgow Caledonian University.

Background

Charting is the process whereby an individual monitors and optimises their interaction with the people and resources who contribute to their learning and development. To support our research on this topic, we have developed prototype Charting Tools which support goal articulation and sharing.
