Digital Divide


This five-week online series, the latest of our BOLD series, will consider the many initiatives being undertaken, worldwide, to bridge the “Digital Divide”. We will aim to provide a basic conceptual framework of background information, readings and case studies derived from the personal experiences and projects of the staff, faculty and affiliates of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at the Harvard Law School. Modules will be led by Charles Nesson, Geoffrey Kirkman, Colin Maclay, Andrew McLaughlin, Jim Moore, Ethan Zuckerman, Diane Cabell and John Palfrey, co-coordinated by Wendy Koslow with Teaching Fellows Urs Gasser, Isabel Neto, Rebecca Brackley and Nandan Kamath (Head Teaching Fellow).

Each module will then be used as a platform for discussion and the sharing of information, opinions and personal experiences between and among participants. This process will often be facilitated and moderated by the Teaching Fellows. Participants will be able to select from different streams and levels of discussion based on their personal expertise and interest.
