Prof Mark Peace

Professor of Innovation, Lead for Innovation Education and Initiatives, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK

Mark is dedicated to curricular innovation with the goal of situating learners as producers, rather than consumers, of education, as well as eroding boundaries within and beyond educational institutions. He has led multiple large and successful institutional strategic projects with proven impacts in narrowing gaps in outcomes, and has been central of the creation and scaling of the Rise initiative, which provides students with the opportunity to tailor their learning experience and participate in a wide-range of experiences that enable them to learn new skills, earn credits towards their degree and develop agency around their future career.
