Jillian Halladay, a part-time instructor in the School of Nursing, won the MSU teaching award this year. The awards ceremony took place in March.
“In my teaching, I aim to break down complex methodological concepts in a way that is understandable, interesting, and applicable to nursing students,” says Halladay. “Learning is fun. However, post-secondary education can be extremely stressful. In this high-stress environment, I strive to create a learning space that is safe and enjoyable, especially for the students who initially come to class dreading the course. I am grateful to teach alongside brilliant and passionate instructors in the School of Nursing and grateful to be able to teach and learn from the nurses of tomorrow.”
Dr. Ruth Chen is Assistant Dean, Academic Resources & Department Education Coordinator (DEC). “Jillian is an excellent instructor and I’m very happy that students have recognized her valuable contributions to the undergraduate nursing program. Jillian consistently demonstrates her commitment to nursing education and research," says Chen.
