"Kirstin was always available to give help whenever I needed it. The assignment feedback was extremely thorough and really really helpful but Kirstin was still willing to go the extra mile on top of the extensive feedback and give me some more advice where I needed it. She also made class and assignments feel very stress free, the discussions were always really interesting but it felt easy to engage with the discussion. Everything we learnt felt like we were learning prep for the future, it really helped give an idea about what ethical issues or digital humanities opportunities we should look out for in future."
"Kirstin is a remarkable tutor and was very helpful in shaping the way I think about my research, not just as a disciplinary concept, but an interdisciplinary one as well."
"I really loved this unit, it's definitely been my favourite unit that I've done in this degree and probably ever. I felt so comfortable and relaxed in class and it made sharing my responses to pause and write prompts easy, there was no concern about awkwardness or judgement. Every lecture and tutorial felt like I was learning something really useful and really good for next year and for academia in future [...] I would leave feeling so relaxed and calm about everything that I had to do. Kirstin was also just so thorough with all the lecture content, everything was so detailed and so useful and the assessment feedback [...] was so thorough, it covered far more areas I could have improved on than previous classes have. Kirstin was also completely willing to spend as much time as she needed with us if we needed extra feedback, help or just a chat, she went completely above and beyond what she needed to do [...]. Kirstin also spent enough time helping me sort out assignments that I was actually able to come up with a thesis idea in those meetings."
"Thank you so much Kirstin for all of your help and feedback throughout the course. I haven't encountered many tutors who are as contactable and supportive as you are. I have truly enjoyed the unit, and will forever read a text in a very different manner."
