Abstract

The LODEStone model is an emerging design model for consulting on organizational, department or team level challenges for specialized learners. LODEStone evolved from the iterative design of OCTBR, a course development tool created at an academic health science center (AHSC). OCTBR's purpose is to help create better blended and online learning experiences for graduate-level students in medicine, allied health and related health sciences. Reflecting on how OCTBR was developed, we describe a pilot model of Learning, Opinions, Discerning, Equipping and Shaping (LODEStone) that can be used to design other projects for specialized learners.
