In the past, I taught two kinds of credit-bearing courses: ed tech for teachers and Educational Game Design

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

Below are some teaching material I have used in various courses

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.
