Piotr Mitros is an innovator and expert in the field of education. He has been a co-founder or key early employee at three organizations, all of which have crossed the 100 million mark, most recently, MITx/edX, where Mitros served as founding Chief Scientist for over a half-decade after having designed and created the Open edX platform, which has around 300 contributors, and 200 deploys, including ones from the Saudi Ministry of Labor, the Ministries of Education in France, and China, and the Queen Rania Foundation (the not-for-profit of the Queen of Jordan), Stanford, the World Economic Forum, as well as edx.org. As of this writing, it powers around 1,000 full, pure-online courses, has around 10 million users, and forms the backbone of a new research ecosystem. Designed from the ground up for educational data collection, randomized control trails, and experimental pedagogies, at the most recent Learning@Scale conference, all but one of the best paper nominees (including the winner) were based on Open edX. Mitros is a frequent keynote speaker, panelist, and consultant on: disruption in education, assessment, learning analytics, educational datamining, open educational resources, learning-at-scale, open education, use of evidence in education, ICT for development, and crowdsourcing in education. When possible, Mitros conducts such presentations in an interactive, group-learning format. Mitros is currently focused on a new initiative targeting soft skills, cross-cultural skills, legal education, and open education.
