Cheryl Matias Selected as 2020 Recipient of the AERA Division K Mid-Career Scholar Award

CU Denver’s Cheryl E. Matias, associate professor in the School of Education & Human Development, has been selected as the 2020 recipient of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) Division K Mid-Career Scholar Award.

The mid-career award honors an outstanding researcher in the second stage of their research career. It recognizes scholars who have established a significant and robust program of research that advances knowledge about teaching or teacher education; advances equity in schooling or teacher education practices; shows innovation and rigor in methodology, and demonstrates contribution to the well-being of students, teacher candidates, teachers, and teacher educators. Dr. Matias’ work rose to the top in a competitive group of very strong nominations because it offers exemplars of how teachers can enact anti-racist pedagogies.
