Extraordinary Learning, driven by curiosity and challenge, inspiring passion and confidence
At the ASMS we understand what makes learning extraordinary. Come and learn with us.
The ASMS has a key role within the South Australian Department For Education to support the professional learning of educators with an interest in increasing student engagement, growth & achievement in science and mathematics. The professional learning activities offered by the ASMS are facilitated by teachers for teachers.
As teachers learning is our profession, it is our way of being. The ASMS is a professional learning community. We actively seek to connect with educators from across the state, nation and world, providing an opportunity for rich conversations based on our knowledge and experiences of designing learning and teaching approaches that aim to challenge and intellectually stretch each of our students.
The ASMS is seen as a focal point for innovative approaches to teaching and learning. Educators come to learn with us as we strive to foster innovation in science and mathematics education.
There are a variety of ways that you can connect with our professional learning services:
- get involved in one of our professional learning programs
- read our Blog
- have a look at our resources

PROFESSIONAL LEARNING PROGRAMS
We support educators to improve the learning, engagement and wellbeing of students
A very interesting afternoon. My colleagues at Utrecht University will be interested as well.
Excitingly different experience, congratulations on an excellent school, thank you.
Personalised, individualised learning in action.
A great school!
It's amazing, an excellent contribution to education.
I now feel armed with a number of excellent resources to teach a high quality unit.
I have felt encouraged to feel more confident to invite a greater range of responses from students that can be used to document evidence of students' learning journey.
Professional learning is not effective unless it causes teachers to improve their professional practice.
