About this Video

Jonathan Zittrain’s classes aren't typical lectures, but rather dynamic spaces in which students engage actively in collective problem-solving processes.  His work as a teacher is profoundly interdisciplinary, as he invites students from Harvard’s Law School, the Kennedy School of Government, the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences to work together to think about issues that traverse their various disciplines.
