UI Learning And Development Director Wins Industry Award

Maureen McCormick, director of learning and development in Human Resources at the University of Iowa, won an industry leadership award in September at the annual Learning In Practice Awards competition sponsored by Chief Learning Officer magazine.

McCormick won the gold award in the category of utilization of marketing resources by helping increase funding for learning and development by 571 percent and participation by 239 percent. Under her leadership, the ContinueToLearn initiative was established, which offers University of Iowa alumni and Iowans e-learning that includes IT and business skills courses in a general catalog, prepares alumni for certification exams and allows alumni to reconnect to their alma mater.

In addition to receiving an etched crystal sculpture, McCormick will be featured in a special supplement to the December issue of Chief Learning Officer magazine.
