Eleanor Ruth Duckworth (born 1935) is a cognitive psychologist, educational theorist, and constructivist educator. She was born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and earned her PhD at the University of Geneva in Geneva, Switzerland in 1977. Duckworth retired as Professor of Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education in 2013. A former student and translator of Jean Piaget, Duckworth's focus is on the nature and development of understanding. Having developed a teaching/research approach known as Critical Exploration in the Classroom, Duckworth's interest is in the experiences of teaching and learning of people of all ages. Duckworth is an advisor to the Harvard Graduate School of Education-Outward Bound Project, a program designed to foster research and understanding of the experience-based theories developed by Outward Bound as they apply to classroom teachers and administrators who pass through the Graduate School of Education.
The videocassettes are arranged in chronological order.
These thirteen videotapes document Professor Duckworth's Harvard Graduate School of Education course T-150, Curriculum Based on Understanding from the Spring semester 1993. The seminar was designed for teachers (K-12 or other) with an interest in research related to curriculum. The class participants are visible throughout all of the footage; in the second tape, Duckworth asked for and received verbal consent of the participants. These videos were filmed by Yeh Hsueh (Harvard Ed.D 1997).
