Daniel Wilson is the director of Project Zero at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE), where he is also a principal investigator, a lecturer on education at HGSE, and the educational chair at Harvard’s Learning Environments for Tomorrow — a collaboration with HGSE and Harvard Graduate School of Design. His teaching and writing explores the inherent socio-psychological tensions — dilemmas of knowing, trusting, leading, and belonging — in adult collaborative learning across a variety of contexts. Specifically, he focuses on how groups navigate these tensions through language, routines, roles, and artifacts.
This interest can be seen in three areas of his current work:
Since joining Project Zero as a researcher in 1993, Wilson, has also participated on projects such as: "Teaching for Understanding" (1993-1996), "Understanding for Organizations" (1996-1999), "Teaching for Understanding in Universities" (1996-1999), "Wide World Project" (1999-2002), "Project-based Learning in After Schools Project" (2000-2002), and the "Storywork Project" with the International Storytelling Institute (2002-2004).
