We’re in the business of innovative research

In recognition of its efforts, the Ecampus Research Unit was recently awarded the 2018 UPCEA Research and Scholarship Award for its pioneering research on instructional designers.

The first in a legacy of many

The past does not dictate the possibilities for one’s future. Erin Mathias knows this firsthand. She enrolled online in the Ecampus fisheries and wildlife sciences program to pursue her dream career, becoming the role model she needed when she was younger and serving as inspiration to her siblings and African American girls who want to enter STEM fields.

When it comes to making research actionable, Oregon State Ecampus is leading the charge

Oregon State University Ecampus knows that as leaders in the field of higher education, there is a responsibility that comes with it: stay on top of the research. And what better way to do so than by being the ones to conduct the research?

From the file room to the boardroom

Twelve years ago, Ingrid Scheel burned out in an engineering program and worked part time filing papers at a small fiber optic technology firm. You wouldn’t have predicted her future success. But now Ingrid holds two college degrees. Those papers she used to file? Now she signs them as the company’s vice president. And to keep the firm on the leading edge of producing hair-thin micro sensors, she’s pursuing an engineering management master’s degree 100% online with Oregon State University Ecampus.

There should have been no doubt that Nikki Brown’s career would revolve around business. Her childhood was marked by one clever business venture after another. From lemonade stands to selling lottery tickets (seriously), she was a one-kid start-up machine.

Breaking the mold

What if part of your teacher education included an intensive, 2-year residency inside a public school where you co-taught with – and were mentored by – a seasoned teacher from day one? (Think medical school residencies, but in schools instead of hospitals.) A newly-launched, graduate program is doing this, and more.
