Jane was one of 12 winners of this year’s Pilkington Prize, which were initiated in 1994 by Sir Alastair Pilkington, who believed that the quality of teaching was crucial to the University’s success.

Nominations for the award are made by each of the University’s six Schools based on criteria that may include major contributions to teaching within a department, introducing a new course or revising an existing course, student engagement, and ability to provide challenging and stimulating teaching.

In a video prepared for this year’s awards, entitled ‘Extraordinary teaching in extraordinary times‘, the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge, Professor Stephen Toope, said: “The Pilkington Prize is Cambridge’s annual celebration of outstanding educators. It recognises both commitment and excellence in teaching. This year, I think we can also say that it recognises adaptability and flexibility in both educators and those who support our teaching efforts.”
