Kim Recommends...

Presentation Zen

This is the book that first introduced me to a better way to design presentations. While many others have picked up the "Anti-PowerPoint" mantle, for me Garr Reynolds is the authority. Anyone who presents anything needs to read his work.

Technology and Learning

There are a lot of blogs and news sources about instructional technology. This blog from InsideHigherEd provides consistently interesting stories that focus on trends and directions in the field, while maintaining a healthy dose of skepticism.
