Why is our education system stuck in last century?
Where have all the progressive educators of the 70s and 80s gone?
What happened to negotiating the curriculum

What can a progressive educator do to disrupt these times?

Susan Hyde
Australian Science and Mathematics School (ASMS)

Susan Hyde has worked for over thirty years in secondary schools and other roles associated with secondary school education. She has been the principal of 4 secondary schools, Manager of the SA R-12 Key Competencies Project, a District Superintendent, and a member of the SSABSA (now SACE) Board.

Susan began her career as science and mathematics teacher and has maintained a high profile in improving science and mathematics education. Susan’s teaching practice was influenced by Garth Boomer’s work and her work published in both editions of Negotiating the Curriculum. She has been active in the education of girls and particularly encouraging girls to study science and mathematics, literacy across the curriculum, Aboriginal Education, promoting women in leadership and the use of digital learning technologies in education.

Most recently, Susan has been principal of the Australian Science and Mathematics School (ASMS) for seven years, leading the innovation of the school into the 21st century in partnership with Flinders University. In 2013, she oversaw a restructure of the ASMS curriculum, which was the catalyst for the development of a truly interdisciplinary curriculum.

Susan’s reflections will stimulate a great deal of discussion. Come and join us!
