High Impact Evaluation (HIE) marks an inflection point in training evaluation. It upends evaluation’s traditional fixation on dead metrics—metrics that tell us what we did, where we’ve been, but not where we’re going.
Learn why HIE is being widely adopted across all Government of Canada departments and championed by a growing catalog of global thought leaders and Fortune 500 companies (MIT, KPMG, Boeing, Harvard Business, Emirates Airline, Scotiabank, Central Bank of Brazil, Capital One, etc.)
Join Dr. Lynette Gillis and Allan Bailey to learn a ground-breaking, made-in-Canada evaluation approach focused on predictive, proactive metrics that will help you move the needle, not just watch it!

Every professional in learning and development (L&D) will tell you that the purpose of training is to change behaviour. Ultimately, from initial onboarding to advanced leadership retreats, the objective is clear: driving new behaviors to create new results.

When teachers and other IEP team members work tirelessly to accelerate struggling learners’ (SLs) rates of progress, they often fall short of their goals. Often, progress regresses, stagnates, or crawls forward by only small inches rather than the 10 yards the IEP team had deemed realistic.
Why regression? Why stagnation? Why only a few inches? Some of these SLs try hard but unsuccessfully to succeed. Some don’t focus, some lack energy, some show little interest, some angrily resist instruction, and some disrupt instruction with ingenious antics.
I probably don’t have to tell you that, as much as we love doing it, teaching can be physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausting work. By the time I get home from a day of teaching and office hours, I tend to feel completely wrung out. There is a lot of pressure on faculty, especially on women, gender expansive, and racialized sessional instructors, to be responsive and attentive to students’ needs. What’s more, as sessional instructors, we often lack the institutional support that we need to take on these additional expectations.

Interesting, relevant multimedia elements are essential to creating engaging e-learning. Obtaining these can be a challenge for e-learning designers and developers with limited resources to create photos, graphics, audio, and video.
Idiomatic expressions like "kick the bucket" or "send someone packing" constitute a special element of a language, and one that is difficult to learn. This is because the meanings of these idioms cannot be derived directly from the meanings of the separate words. Linguist Ferdy Hubers of Radboud University will defend his doctoral dissertation on the process by which such idioms are internalized by people acquiring a second language.
