UK Health Sciences Professor Receives Excellence in Teaching Award

Published: May 16, 2013

 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 16, 2013) – Charles Marshall, assistant professor in the Division of Physical Therapy, has been named the 2013 recipient of the University of Kentucky College of Health Sciences' Kingston Award for Excellence in Teaching.  

 

Marshall's primary teaching responsibility is in the Center of Excellence in Rural Health in Hazard. He is responsible for teaching human gross anatomy, advanced osetology, histology for physical therapy students, and neuroanatomy and physiology.

 

“I am honored and humbled to win the Kingston Award. I love teaching, especially to students near my home in rural Kentucky,” Marshall said.

 

According to his nominators, "Marshall demonstrates sound educational pedagogy that is appreciated by his students. With this commitment to teaching also comes a calm and professional advisor. He is a role model for many of the rural students in the physical therapy program and his easy going advising style is appreciated. His presence on the campus gives students someone to emulate. He is an example of someone who has used a strong education in a positive way to give back to his community as he is originally from Hazard."

 

Dr. Marshall’s dedication to the Hazard students is seen day after day, said Hannah Jefferson, UK Physical Therapy Class of 2013 president. “He advocates for everyone in our program and legitimately wants all of us to succeed. He will entertain any questions from each of the three classes at any given time throughout the semester, as well as asking how we are doing on clinical rotations, and honestly caring about our futures.”

 

The Kingston Award was established in recognition of Richard “Dick” Kingston’s creativity and innovation in education. This award recognizes faculty for outstanding contributions and long-term consistent excellence in teaching.
