Jeremy Lopez receives President's Teaching Award

June 4, 2020

Professor Jeremy Lopez of the Faculty of Arts & Science’s department of English has been awarded the President’s Teaching Award – the highest honour for teaching at the University of Toronto.

“This award is a great honour, not least because of how high the level of teaching is at U of T,” Lopez said. “I feel lucky to have been supported by – and to have had the opportunity to learn from – so many other distinguished teachers since I joined the Faculty.”

A scholar of early modern literature,Renaissance literature, Shakespeare and drama, Lopez has taught a wide range of undergraduate and graduate courses including large-lecture first-year courses, summer study abroad courses and graduate pedagogical training courses.

“The University of Toronto prides itself on hiring faculty who bring cutting-edge research to their classes, while providing a learning experience that is both intellectually stimulating and immensely enjoyable,” said department chair Paul Stevens. “Jeremy Lopez is a model of the kind of charismatic teaching and brilliant scholarship that makes the University of Toronto such a world-class institution.”
