MSCI 2023

Reimagining Student-Centered Learning

June 26 – 28, 2023

This year’s institute will be held in person on the Roanoke College campus.

Featuring texts by two of our speakers:



Toward the goal of reimagining student-centered learning, MSCI will focus on:

  • Building a dynamic learning community
  • Fostering student empowerment and agency
  • Unpacking standards in ways that promote meaningful student engagement
  • Empowering teachers as instructional designers
  • Varying modalities to enrich student learning
  • Leveraging technology to enhance rather than replace in-person instruction

The Margaret Sue Copenhaver Institute for Teaching and Learning provides quality professional development opportunities for PreK-12 teachers and administrators and for Roanoke College students. The Institute's emphases include:

  1. Consideration of cutting-edge perspectives relevant to the teaching profession;
  2. Determination of personal and practical ways to engage students as lifelong learners; and
  3. Examination of a variety of multimedia and instructional technology strategies and tools for enhancing students' growth as learners.

The Institute gives PreK-12 teachers the opportunity to develop and practice strategies for effective instruction in cooperation with the nation's leading educational scholars.
