Don’t just visit, stay and change your students' global perspectives.

The Microcampusing idea comes from Craig Tafel, a teacher from Shanghai American School (SAS) who uses a luxury mana house retreat ‘The Linden Centre’ near Dali to run microcampusing for SAS students. Our vision for microcampuses see’s many schools across China making use of multiple locations for running extended microcampus programmes.

Why take a year group away for just a few days or a few weeks? Why not take them away into the countryside for an extended period of time, so they can feel like a true part of the local community? After all, students these days all have laptop computers. They can make use of distance learning resources to give them access to most of the research materials they have in school.
