Haley Kerkhoff began in the field of instructional design in 2013, first as a student editor during graduate school and then as an instructional designer starting in 2014. Since that time, she has assisted instructors in a variety of disciplines – primarily music, social work, and nutritional sciences – with the design, development, and management of their undergraduate and graduate-level online and blended courses. Following an undergraduate career focused on 20th century American history and political science, she continued her studies in the history of higher education, which culminated in her thesis on the first GI Bill and its implementation at UW–Madison. Haley has been fortunate to sustain her passion surrounding the promise of public higher education through her work as an instructional designer in CTLM. She strives to provide the highest quality and most accessible online educational experiences to students. To that end, she is trained in Quality Matters and utilizes its Higher Education Rubric both during development meetings with instructors and within the Quality Review Process that she oversees for the ID Group. Outside of work, Haley’s hobbies include team sports, reading historical fiction, volunteering with the Junior League, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
