Kirsty’s a real class act

The Oban Times - - News -

‘MO­TI­VATED’ stu­dents at the Univer­sity of the High­lands and Is­lands have helped a marine sci­en­tist be­come an award-win­ning teacher.

Dr Kirsty Crocket, from the Oban-based Scot­tish As­so­ci­a­tion for Marine Science (SAMS), won the best as­sess­ment feed­back award in this year’s Univer­sity of the High­lands and Is­lands Teach­ing Awards.

The prize is awarded to the lec­turer who re­ceives the best feed­back from stu­dents and Dr Crocket, who has only been teach­ing for two years, was praised for ‘set­ting a marker for other lec­tur­ers to fol­low’. Dr Crocket, who pre­vi­ously worked at Im­pe­rial Col­lege, Lon­don, said: ‘This is my first po­si­tion as a lec­turer and I am re­ally en­joy­ing it.

‘I teach a fourth year mod­ule, so by the time the stu­dents come to me they are re­ally highly mo­ti­vated to do well.’
