IfM lecturer recognised for teaching excellence

Dr James Moultrie has been awarded one of the University of Cambridge's Pilkington Prizes - awarded to individuals who have shown teaching of exceptional quality.


Senior Lecturer in Design Management at IfM, Dr Moultrie is one of just 12 individuals from across the university to receive the award.


He was recognised for his transformational work in providing MET students with the management competence, business acumen and interpersonal and organisational skills they need to become world-class leaders.


Dr Moultrie leads the IfM’s Manufacturing Design Show where MET students complete a major design project to develop a new product, with real business potential, and then present their product to an invited audience of local industrialists and



The Design Show involves the students developing displays to explain the

technical and business ideas behind their products, together with design details and prototype models of the products themselves. The projects have generated some exciting new ideas and innovative technology, some of which have gone on to be commercialised.


The Pilkington Teaching Prizes were established in 1994 by businessman and alumnus of Trinity College, Sir Alastair Pilkington. The aim was to ensure that excellence in teaching at the University was given proper recognition.


This is the third time that IfM teaching staff have been recognised with a Pilkington Teaching Prize. The award has previously been won by Dr Claire Barlow (1997) and Dr Tim Minshall (2012)
