Marie Sciangula

Assistant Director of the Teaching, Learning, and Technology Center

I’m the Assistant Director of the Teaching, Learning, and Technology Center at Purchase College, SUNY, located in the Purchase College Library.  I manage and administer Moodle, the campus’ learning management system, and promote innovative uses of academic technologies across campus.

More About Me

I offer training and workshops for faculty and staff geared towards integrating technology into teaching and learning and encourage the use of open source applications. I’m an active member of the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) as a member of the Social Media, Bibliographic Instruction, and CollectiveAccess special interest groups and a member of the myMETRO Researchers Pilot Project. I regularly present at local and national conferences including SUNY’s Conference on Instruction and Technology (CIT), SUNY Librarians Association conference, and METRO’s annual conferences. I’ve also presented at ARLIS/NA, have been published in Art Documentation, The Global Librarian, and, most recently, Distributed Learning: Pedagogy and Technology in Online Information Literacy Instruction.

I received a bachelor’s degree in Women’s Studies (now Gender Studies) from Purchase College, SUNY and a MLIS from Long Island University’s Palmer School of Library and Information Science.

I’ve been playing guitar since age 12 and I’m obsessed with music.
