Kristin Robinson

After earning master’s degrees in American Studies at Yale University, I worked on my doctoral dissertation which investigated the role of the image of home in American culture up to the Civil War. This somewhat esoteric topic led to digging into cultural history and to my considering how ideological and corresponding physical structures could impact both human action and possibilities.
It is this idea—that there are structures that directly influence the success or failure of ideas, efforts, and people—that was my connection with CAST. In my work in CAST’s research and development initiatives, I am particularly interested in using instructional design to acknowledge and empower the diverse priorities among the widest range of learners.
