  1. i know these TDW & TOT (training-related) posts don't make for the most interesting reading material... believe me, it's not that much more fun typing these entries up and posting them. but again, "i share all this as insight into how PCVs are [technically] trained."

    i was an education volunteer, so this is how teachers were trained... both as incoming PCTs (peace corps trainees) and, for those of us who went on to teach at TTCs (teacher training colleges), this is how we then trained our student-teachers.

    that's TOT (training of trainers)!

    peace :)
