Berkman Study groups are an agile and responsive format for exploring the important questions facing Internet and Society through in-depth discussion and development. Study Groups are designed to encourage public participation among the Berkman Community with
members of the greater Boston community. That might include Fellows, students from Harvard and other Boston-area institutions, start up industry entrepreneurs, and so on. Study Groups encourage participation across disciplines and experience to tackle interesting questions with fresh perspective. For the 2014—15 academic year we are experimenting with the format with a number of pilot Study Groups.
