the other Pilkington Prize winners.
Eleven of the University of Cambridge’s finest teachers were honoured at a reception last month.
The Pilkington Prizes are awarded each year to academic or academic-related staff who have distinguished themselves in teaching. This year's winners include an earth scientist, a 17th-century literature expert and an electronics and photonics engineer, all of whom have conveyed their enthusiasm and love of their subjects to countless students.
The Vice-Chancellor Professor Alison Richard awarded the prizes at the Møller Centre, followed by supper at Churchill College.
Dr Tim Wilkinson of Jesus College, a University Senior Lecturer in the Department of Engineering, working in the Electrical Engineering division, has a natural gift for teaching and delivers his courses with clarity and with humour.
He can inspire first-year students with fundamental electromagnetism and also explain complex specialist material on optics and telecommunications to fourth year Masters' students. Tim has an impressive record in teaching innovation, including his contribution to 'Displaymasters' - a unique multi-centre Masters' programme focused entirely on display technology.
