forms for observational research?

Hi, all. I'm going to be observing a very large-scale live simulation next week, which is something that I haven't done in many years. When I last did it, I seem to remember coming across some case studies of similar observational activities, in which the observers used standardized forms of some sort to take notes and ease data recording.

IxD Schools... Advice needed!

Hey everyone, I'm in the process of finding a masters program for Interactive Design and would like some opinions. I recently graduated with a BA in Psychology but want to persue a different path. I've found some masters programs that accept students from all backgrounds and would like to know what you think, as professionals, about them.

Call for Proposals: IA Summit 2012 in New Orleans

= On behalf of the IA Summit 2012 Team - Apologies for cross-posting =

Wow. Last month we asked you for workshop proposals, and boy did we get workshop proposals! The IAS team is still busy whittling down 101 submissions into an outstanding program of workshops, but one thing is clear: this year we’re going to rock New Orleans.

So, what else do you have to contribute to the information architecture and user experience conversation? We are now accepting proposals for sessions and posters.

Portfolio critique for graduating Interactive Media Designer

As tough as it is to open yourself up to public mockery, I'm graciously asking for a your professional feedback on my portfolio site, http://ernies3.com

I'm graduating next Thursday and will be presenting my work during a portfolio show. I figure - you're my people, so at the end of the day the feedback I get from you will be exactly what I need to stay pointed in the right direction. 

(I'm aware of and correcting some "issues" in the UI/Fast Food Web App prototype)

Thanks all,
Ernie S.
