I had the vague sense that I'd include lots of user-experience-design links and commentary in this blog, but it hasn't happened. Perhaps I've put that professional development aside for now while I'm immersed in educational technology and theory in this masters program.
Anyway, I did find this excellent list of resources tonight: user experience design from Headshift, which seems to be one of these very cool web consulting firms that I find so intimidating at times. Great stuff, though -- some of it idealistic, but much of it very practical, and most of it overlaps nicely with instructional design ideas. Reminds me that I should be documenting some of the emerging design processes we've been developing at work.
