The Fellow designation was developed to acknowledge CSTD members who have attained eminence in the field of training and development. A CSTD Fellow is recognized by their peers, the CSTD Board and the Fellow Nominating Committee for outstanding achievement and their professional contributions to the Society and the learning and development profession.
Dr. Lynette Gillis, a cognitive and educational psychologist, is an internationally recognized authority and advisor in enterprise learning strategy for leading organizations in the private and public sector. This level of recognition is based on Lynette?s several decades as a leading innovator in the design, development and evaluation of learning.

Dr. Gillis and her company, Centre for Learning Impact (CFLI), recently launched a new learning evaluation model, High Impact Evaluation?. Developed as a predictive and proactive alternative to traditional evaluation models, the new methodology focuses on enhancing performance and the business impact of learning investments, rather than simply measuring it. High Impact Evaluation? includes tools such as the Capability and Transfer Questionnaires and Indices, Impact Mapping, and a Risk Management tool.
