Dann Hurlbert

Media and Design Specialist, Information Technology Services

Dann Hurlbert is Carleton College’s Media & Design Specialist, and he works to help faculty create “Perfect” Instructional Videos and associated assessments.  Dann also supervises 30 PEPS students and manages Carleton’s campus Event Video Production.  Prior to Carleton, Dann spent 15 years teaching video production and theatre and worked as a professional actor and director — appearing in 50+ television commercials and nearly that many stage productions. Through his MFA, Dann produced the educational documentary How to Write and Produce Your Own High School Musical, which is currently being distributed through Films Media Group. He also invented and brought to market the Little Prompter, a personal teleprompter for faculty which has taken on a life of its own with another video supplier.  His most recent creative endeavor involved writing and publishing a YA and Christian Fiction novel, Suddenly Rural Girl, with his teenage daughter.  Dann has a certificate in online teaching through UW Stout and has loads of experience on stage, on the screen, and as both a face-to-face and online instructor.  He gladly continues that work at Carleton and beyond.

Folks often hear Dann say “Every day is a good day,” because he knows he’s been blessed–we all have, and it helps to humbly bring that perspective into each day. Today is a good day–let’s use it to bless others.

At Carleton since 2014.
