This paper describes how expert review strategies were applied to the testing and refinement phase of an educational design research project being conducted under the auspices of the World Health Organization (WHO). The overall goals of the educational design research project are to address the cold chain management challenge confronted around the world when vaccines and other perishable medicines are transported and stored, and to develop reusable design principles for the development of e-learning for the WHO. The paper focuses on the expert review process as it aligns with a design research approach, and in particular, on the instrument used to collect the expert opinion and data. Three highly qualified experts participated in this formative evaluation activity. The paper describes how their recommendations were analyzed and used by the WHO design team to refine their prototype design for a “Pharmaceutical Cold Chain Management on Wheels” e-learning course.
