Maha Bali’s blog about education

4. Teaching

Reading Time: 1 minutes

I teach two kinds of credit-bearing courses: ed tech for teachers (since 2008) and educational game design for undergrads (started 2014).

I have recently been listed as one of the best digital teachers!

Below are some teaching material I have used in various courses

For-Credit Teaching (non-credit teaching is on another page)

Creativity & Creative Problem-Solving

I teach the “Educational Game Design Module” of the Creativity & Creative Problem Solving undergraduate course.

The course website which contains aggregated student blogs starting Fall 2014 is here.

My own blogging about the course is here; my blogging about educational games in general is here.

From Fall 2014 here is my section of the syllabus; my blogging about the Twitter Scavenger Hunt, #TvsZ game, Hack-a-thon, Liquefy the Syllabus assignment, reflections on Egyptian game designer guest lecture, and final educational games designed.

From Spring 2014 This was my first class activity: Maha Bali – Name the Game Game May 5 2014 Here is my blogpost after reading student reflections near end of semester.

Teacher Education

I started teaching in the Professional Educators Diploma in the educational technology track when it first started at the American University in Cairo in 2008. I have taught several of the courses, but the one I have taught most often, and which is closest to my heart, is the “Social, legal, ethical and human issues in educational technology” course. Here is my most recent syllabus.
