Anna Darnell

Content Manager

Why I Choose to Work at Academic Innovation:

“Education continues to shape my life in enormous ways, and I know it’s not an option for everyone right now. The chance to apply my fundamental passion for organization towards increased access to education is the chance of a lifetime. “

Current Roles/Previous Experience:

Anna works across several AI tools updating and testing content, tracking content delivery, responding to error reports from users, working with faculty to update and correct content errors, and developing content processes and user documentation.

Before the Center, Anna managed the administration and operations of the curricular large ensemble programs at the U-M School of Music, Theatre & Dance. She also spent a few years as Assistant to the Executive Director of Yellow Barn, an international chamber music festival in Putney, Vermont.
