Innovations in Education – The Flipped Classroom

Innovations in Education – The Flipped Classroom

The Albright School of Education is launching a new discussion series called Innovations in Education. The series will be broadcast at four of CityU’s Washington State locations on ITV and will start at 6:30 p.m.

The first event will be on October 30 at 6:30 p.m. and will focus on the flipped classroom. At this event, Greg Green, Principal of Clintondale High School – the first high school in the United States to “flip” its classroom and curriculum – will speak on how he has found success with this new academic model.

The flipped classroom is a relatively new movement or model in education. Students work on homework assignments with teacher support during the day and watch lectures on video in their own time when they previously would have completed homework.

According to Principal Green, since flipping their classrooms in 2010 with 140 freshmen, Clintondale High School has reduced failure rates among students by 33 percent in English Language Arts, 31 percent in Mathematics, 22 percent in Science and 19 percent in Social Studies in just one semester. Do you want to hear and know more? Join us on October 30th!

Here is the agenda:

The event is open to alumni, students, faculty, staff, and the public. We hope you come and listen to this nationally recognized educator at our Bellevue, Tacoma, Everett, or Vancouver campus.

If you want to get a sneak peak before Tuesday, October 30 go to and/or watch these videos to learn more about the flipped classroom.

Please RSVP by registering HERE. If you have questions about this event, email We hope to see you there!
