After looking into different providers to offer a Train-the-Trainer program to my team of newer facilitators, I elected to go with Eleanor because of her professional but down-to-earth manner and her flexibility to customize the training to the team’s needs. Over the course of the 6 month project, she kept in regular contact to ensure that the workshops being delivered were meeting our objectives. As a facilitator, Eleanor was sensitive to individual needs and was a model for the team of how to put adult learning principles into practice. I found Eleanor easy to work with and can readily recommend her for her professionalism and tact as well as knowledge of adult learning, needs assessment and course development.

Eleanor is very knowledgeable and open-minded. As a former student, I enjoyed her classes as they were never boring. She is passionate about educational research and teaching. She also encourages her students to explore. I remember once, at the end of a course, she said, “If you leave this course with more questions than answers, then my goal has been accomplished.” I learned a lot from that course, but I realized there is so much more to be learned. She has motivated me to keep a keen interest in education.

I have worked with Eleanor in several program quality reviews. Eleanor always ensured that the review process was a valuable learning experience for program faculty so that they would be able to achieve and maintain high standards of curriculum quality after the review was completed. She viewed program review as not only a matter of achieving compliance but of encouraging a culture of continuous improvement.

Eleanor is a highly creative and articulate individual. I greatly enjoyed working with her on projects to develop online learning modules for faculty development. Eleanor is very engaging, approachable, collaborative, and professional and these qualities served her well as she eloquently navigated a labyrinth of personal and political agendas in a unionized environment while working on a tight timeline.
