Biography

Annie Hale is a Director of Research & Development for the Institute's Pathfinder Center at Arizona State University. Annie directs a portfolio of educational programs that inspire, engage, and empower various publics, from educators to community leaders. She aspires to make the world a better place through hard work, community connections, listening, and strategic use of innovative technologies to improve learning. Through the principle of "elegantly-designed experiences," Annie co-develops with her team well-reasoned, meticulously curated, and high-quality content that is aesthetically appealing, engaging, and accessible to a broad audience. Invoking the principle of elegantly designed experiences, which she writes and presents on, is one way to make good on the adaptive capacity of the present-day university and the imminent transformation of higher education. 

Annie's scholarly research spans various topics, including education for sustainability (EfS), science and technology studies (STS), the use of innovative technologies to improve learning experiences, design from a human-centered approach, and transformations in higher education. Annie's research agenda is intentionally connected to her current projects and morphs as she takes on new endeavors. By design, her research efforts aim to contribute meaningfully to the communities she engages.

To advance these projects and research, Hale has more than ten years of experience securing grants and philanthropic funding. In the last six years alone, she has brought in more than $1.5M in research awards. Before coming to ASU, she worked in the field of architecture as a designer for five years at the influential architecture studio, Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill. She is LEED-certified and is a certified Lean Six Sigma Green Belt from Purdue.
