Learning about Game Theory would be useful for game designers: http://oyc.yale.edu/economics/game-t...ents/downloads

Other then that, you can try the GDC Vault for more talks, http://www.sirlin.net/ has some good stuff as well. Theory of fun book has been recommended by quite a few people to read.

South African game dev magazine. Has a feature where they interview puzzle game designers that should be useful
http://devmag.org.za/2011/05/02/how-...gned-guy-lima/

game studies articles by same guy who wrote Imaginary Games, a game studies book that seems pretty good in terms of digestiveness and author-knows-their-stuff-ness
http://www.kotaku.com.au/author/chris-bateman/

Brenda Brathwaite has a book, 10 challenges for game designers that has been recommended

A good post on gamasutra worth reading about problems teaching (and thus learning) game design:
http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/Lewis...e_Problems.php

Haven't actually listened to it yet, but GameProdigyDotCom video tutorials seem promising:

course website for Jesse Schell's game design class:
