Maura Smale

I’m Chief Librarian and Professor at the Ursula C. Schwerin Library, New York City College of Technology (City Tech) and faculty in the Interactive Technology and Pedagogy certificate program. I’ve served Co-Director of the City Tech OpenLab, an open digital platform for teaching, learning, and collaboration. I have a Ph.D. in Anthropology from NYU and a Masters of Library and Information Science from Pratt Institute. With Mariana Regalado of Brooklyn College I’ve pursued a multi-campus study of the scholarly habits of undergraduates at CUNY; our book Digital Technology as Affordance and Barrier in Higher Education was published last year. My other research interests include using games in teaching and learning, open scholarship and teaching, critical librarianship, and educational technology. You can find articles and book chapters I’ve written in Academic Works, CUNY’s institutional repository.
