Teaching

Prof. Robinson teaches graduate courses on both planetary physics and on exoplanets. He also instructs an introductory course on astrobiology for non-scientists, and leads a graduate fellowship writing seminar. Resources for these course (and more!) are collected below.


A calculus primer for students in astronomy and planetary science can be found here.


I was lead editor for, and a primary contributor to, the University of Washington Astrobiology Lab Manual. These publicly-available materials are targeted to a lab that accompanies a 100-level introductory course in astrobiology.


I co-developed a public outreach and education curriculum for a program at the University of Washington (called Engage). This curriculum (see here) is publicly available to any group or institution that aims to develop its own program focused on teaching scientists to be effective public communicators.
