What's next in my learning and how do I get it?

I thought I'd get people talking about what it is they are looking to learn and where they are hoping to learn it kinda question.

There's a lot of formal EDU in IxD being created all around the world, but obviously, not everyone can jump into a 1-2yr program. So my question is what do you think you need to learn to be a better practitioner of IxD and how do you want to learn it?

What do folks think of this?

Aren't there more than two design disciplines?

I tossed the above out to see what thoughts might emerge. Interesting that
some folks came back to defend the orgs.

Integration between paper and electronic forms

I've been asked to redesign the same form in two different media. A
paper form, will be completed by consumers. A data-entry person will
read the paper form and 'transfer' it's info to a web app form.

Obviously, I want the two forms to be as similar as they can possibly
be. Can anyone give some advice or perhaps point me in the direction of
some good info on this?

Reminder: IxDA Silicon Valley Event at Yahoo! :: Jan 23 2013 :: Steven Hoober on Designing for Ecosystems Instead of Screens and Pages

Too often, we design systems for boxes—whether big, metal boxes that it would take a forklift to move or little plastic boxes that we carry around in our pockets—rather than thinking about how they are connected and how people can share and use them to do work. When it’s all about the computer or device, we design systems, tasks, and content that fit into those little boxes.
