China International Fair for Trade in Services ("CIFTIS"), the largest comprehensive exhibition in the field of global trade in services in China, has invited Dulwich College International ("Dulwich") to showcase the Dulwich Difference as an example of education innovation and international cooperation in the digital era. Hosted jointly by China's Ministry of Commerce and Beijing's Municipal Government from 3rd to 7th September 2021, CIFTIS 2021 comprised companies from throughout the nation across the sectors of culture and tourism, health, sports, engineering, telecommunications, finance, supply chain, and education. Notably, it is the second year that Dulwich has been invited as an exhibitor.
“Dulwich College International is driven by three core values: Students Come First, One Family of Schools, and a Pioneering Spirit. Our student-centred, innovative culture impacts everything we do, from curriculum innovation, to adopting cutting-edge technologies in our classrooms, to developing new ways of teaching and learning. By facilitating collaboration among our eight schools and three sister schools across China and Asia, our pioneering culture has enabled us to be agile, creative, and successful in developing holistic education that prepares our students for the future,” remarked Fraser White, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Dulwich College International. “China has been our home base since our founding nearly two decades ago, and we are delighted to represent innovation and global collaboration in the international school sector for the second year in a row.”
The Dulwich Difference is defined by an innovative, student-centred and holistic curriculum, backed by the rich resources, connections and opportunities of its international family of schools. It is marked by a balanced focus on wellbeing, character development and academic success, with learning experiences that are personalised to the needs, talents and capabilities of each student. Students are also connected across campuses and beyond borders, allowing students to collaborate, learn from one another, and experience truly global education.
The strength of the Dulwich family has also enabled educators to collaborate and pioneer to directly impact student outcomes. Dulwich brings its teaching community together to share innovative teaching methods, creative lessons, and more – so each student benefits not only from the experience of their own teachers, but also from those throughout the network. The unique strength of the Dulwich family has enabled real-time innovation and best practice sharing, allowing schools to optimise learning for any context – whether online, on-campus, or in hybrid situations – which has proven critical over the last two years.
As the world moves toward an increasingly digital future, Dulwich has leveraged a breadth of technologies and tools to further deepen the connections within the network and provide students with new ways of learning. This has led to innovative opportunities for students to collaborate in real-time across campuses, and for regular professional learning both within the network and through partnerships with international experts. Dulwich continues to evolve learning by adding new knowledge, experiences and skill areas for students, so that they are prepared for the future, and Graduate Worldwise.
