Matthew Sergi receives Early Career Teaching Award

The University of Toronto is recognizing Matthew Sergi with an Early Career Teaching Award for the 2018-2019 academic year.

The award recognizes faculty members who are effective teachers and demonstrate an exceptional commitment to student learning, pedagogical engagement and teaching innovation. Sergi is one of four faculty members receiving the honour.

An assistant professor in the department of English in the Faculty of Arts & Science, Sergi brings live performance and re-enactments to his classrooms in a bid to spark heightened discourse and make the humanities feel more human.

“This year’s winners of the Early Career Teaching Award have brought creativity, passion and a genuine sense of leadership that prioritizes and prizes our students’ in-classroom experience,” says Vice-President and Provost Cheryl Regehr. “The University of Toronto congratulates them for their early career honour, a well-earned accolade.”
