A birthday diary

Serage Amatory, The American University in Cairo

Description or Abstract

My birthday this year was very normal and full of routine activities such as going to classes, cooking and doing laundry, until I received the most heartwarming video from my friends all over the world reminding me it was my birthday but by the time I remembered it was too late to celebrate for I had to take my pills and sleep through another battle with insomnia! music: Fairouz - Ya Tayr script: docs.google.com/document/d/1JNxNy…tAlxQheRhq-k/edit The #AUCdiaries project is an oral history project that documents the life of the AUC community. The project was initiated by Kim Fox in the Department of Journalism and Mass Communication (JRMC) along with Hoda Mostafa, Maha Bali and Nadine Aboulmagd, all from the Center for Learning and Teaching (CLT). The bulk of the content that was created for the #AUCdiaries podcasts was completed by students as part of AUC courses. As such, this is both a digital pedagogy project, since students learn while producing, and a digital scholarship project, since the output is considered to be digital scholarship.
