Heather Garcia

Instructional Design Specialist

Office: 4943 The Valley Library
Phone: 541-737-7704

I joined Oregon State University Ecampus in November 2018 as an instructional design specialist. Prior to joining Oregon State, I worked as an instructional designer at Foothill College in California. I have worked in the field of instructional design, faculty development and support, course development, and training for over 10 years.

I hold an MS in Instructional Science and Technology from CSU Monterey Bay and a BA in Modern Literature with an emphasis in Spanish from UC Santa Cruz.

Some of my favorite aspects of instructional design include collaborating with faculty, exploring ways to be more equitable in our course design, and evaluating and improving online and hybrid courses. I’m excited to be a member of the OSU Ecampus team.
