Heather Williams developed the role of Language and Culture Curriculum Coordinator with Work Integrated Learning & the Centre for English Language Learning, Teaching and Research out of a project to help English as Additional Language learners in Co-operative Education at Simon Fraser University. She has combined her knowledge of intercultural education and student preparation to create this unique curriculum designed specifically to meet students "at the place where they are".   From this work, Heather has also worked with staff units on their intercultural development at SFU.

Heather works collaboratively with units across campus and has recently been seconded on a project to help SFU develop an Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion strategic plan. Heather has earned the certificate in intercultural studies from University of British Columbia, is an Intercultural Development Inventory Qualified Assessor, and is working on a Masters in Equity Studies in Education, through SFU.  In her work you will find traces of her passion for life-long learning, the understanding and advocacy for experiential education and some sneaky undertones of yoga philosophy.
