Learning/Instructional Design

“Beth developed a course for our School of Health and Human Services. Beth’s ability to acquire resources, develop curricula and liaison with a multi-disciplinary department was of the highest calibre. I valued Beth’s knowledge, flexibility and professionalism. It was a pleasure to work with Beth.” – Joan Astren, Community, Family Child Studies Department, School of Health and Human Services, Camosun College

“Beth assisted us in developing an interactive online course and resources in the area of Career Management and Experiential Education.  She provided the perfect blend of technical and pedagogical expertise and delivered a product that met the expectations of the whole team. While working with Beth on this project, I observed her high levels of professionalism, flexibility, wisdom and kindness.  I look forward to the opportunity to work with her again.” – Kyla McLeod, Director, Student Services, Royal Roads University

Facilitation

“Beth Cougler Blom and I facilitated a seven week online training program for volunteers in the fall of 2015. Beth developed an exceptional training program to prepare volunteers to provide post treatment support to cancer patients (the Transition Volunteer Program). I had no experience with online facilitation and Beth was in BC while I was in Nova Scotia. It was an absolute pleasure working with Beth. Her organizational and facilitation skills made the process so easy. She has a great sense of humor and she is clearly passionate and skilled at what she does.” – Kim Veino, Volunteer Engagement Coordinator, Canadian Cancer Society – Nova Scotia

“Beth helped me plan, organize and deliver a two-day instructional design planning session for a high-profile project with multiple stakeholders. Her careful planning, great activity ideas, and ability to adapt quickly in the face of a changing agenda made the session run smoothly and kept participants engaged. I loved the experience of co-planning with Beth and look forward to working with her again!” – Jennifer Riddel, Educational Project Manager, Open School BC, Ministry of Education

“Beth recently facilitated our company’s annual strategic planning session and we were very grateful to have the support of a facilitator with Beth’s particular expertise. She had a thorough understanding of our role as contractors and of our clientele within the non-profit sector, and she was able to structure the day in a way that fits well with these realities. She kept us on track and synthesized our long-winded exchanges (a great feat!) in a way that captured the essence of the matter. She took initiative and asked the right questions, gently pushed us when necessary and knew when to hold back and listen. Eight hours of planning can be exhausting, but Beth’s energy and enthusiasm kept us alert and engaged. We highly recommend her facilitation services for any organization looking for a confident, authentic and adaptable professional.” – Nicole Nelson, Director, Grants & Research, Isaac Ventures Management
