William started working as the Instructional Designer at the School of Nursing in August 2022. He approaches design through a lens of learning through play. He encourages his collaborators to take time to play and reserve a space to reflect. Through this process we learn about our authentic teaching selves. This allows us to maintain our individuality and creativity when incorporating best practices.
