Indiana University
Professor of Practice in Anthropology

Dr. Robinson is Professor of Practice in the Anthropology Department at Indiana University and the founding co-director of the campus-wide graduate certificate on college pedagogy. She maintains a dual research agenda on pedagogy and food studies.

She teaches graduate courses on the pedagogy of higher education and directs a 10-person team of graduate-student associate instructors in a large general education course on interpersonal communication. Her pedagogy research currently focuses on developing the potential of harnessing learning analytics for classroom-based, disciplinary teaching and learning, particularly to understand and mitigate grade surprise. She has been an IU Student Learning Analytics Fellow since 2015 and currently leads a large collaborative grant involving six faculty members and their 6300 students annually.

She was president of the International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (ISSOTL) and received their Distinguished Service Award in 2016. She coordinated three international projects for the Carnegie Academy for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning and current co-edits the Indiana University Press book series Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. She formerly directed Campus Instructional Consulting and the award-winning Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Program at Indiana and was awarded a distinguished service award by the IU Faculty Colloquium on Excellence in Teaching.

Her research on food and environment focuses on small-scale, alternative agriculture. Among her books are Selling Local: Why Local Food Movements Matter (2017) and The Farmers' Market Book: Growing Food, Cultivating Community (2007). She was part of a team awarded a $2.5 million grant from the Indiana University Office of the Provost in 2018 to study sustainable food systems, developing an in-depth case study of Indiana and comparative sites in the US, Europe, Africa, and South America.

She teaches courses on food and culture throughout the undergraduate and graduate curricula. She co-edited Teaching Environmental Literacy across the Curriculum (With Reynolds and Brondizio 2010) and A Cultural Approach to Interpersonal Communication (With Monaghan and Goodman 2012). She earned a PhD in English with a graduate minor in Folklore from Indiana University. She lives on a farm in scenic Greene County, Indiana, and enjoys travelling to farmers' markets around the world.
