Dr. Daniel Hall, Assistant Professor of Economics, joined HPU in 2010 and brought with him a tech-savvy skill set that has added innovative techniques and teaching methodologies to the classroom. He and Dr. Stephanie Crofton have received grants from the HPU Think Big Program and the Charles Koch Foundation supporting their project to create iPad apps that help teach economic principles using market experiments. These apps have been created in a joint venture with Prof. Roger Shore and a team of HPU computer science major students! The apps are just one component of Dr. Hall’s unique teaching methods which also include various games and competitions.

At HPU, Dr. Hall teaches microeconomics, macroeconomics, and environmental economics. He is a contributing member of the school of business Assurance of Learning Committee. He serves the University and community at large as the advisor to the Civitan Club on campus, a group known for the good works and civic duties. The Civitan Club has won many awards for service and Dr. Hall was awarded Outstanding Faculty Advisor by his students. Dr. Hall also incorporates Civitan into his research and into his teaching of a service learning course in microeconomics. He was honored as Service Learning Professor of the Year for the 2013-2014 academic year.

Dr. Hall has two current peer reviewed publications dealing with trust under different property right entitlements in the journal Games and the efficiency-equality tradeoff in the “Charity with Choice” issue of Research in Experimental Economics. He has several research projects in progress and presents regularly at the Association of Private Enterprise Education Conference, the Southern Economic Association Conference, and the Economic Science Association Conference.

Dr. Hall earned his Ph.D. and M.A. in Economics at Georgia State University and his B.S. in Economics at Georgia State College and State University.
