Peer Coaching Master Trainer Training in Brazil and Malaysia
BOTHELL, WA - In February, Les Foltos and Shelee King George met with 32 Brazilian educators to provide the first phase of the Peer Coaching Master Trainer Training.

To prepare for the PSCTLT trainers, the Brazilian Microsoft Partners in Learning team had translated materials and hired simultaneous translators. Each morning, participants donned headphones to hear the Portuguese translation while training was delivered in English. Trainers wore headphones to hear the English translation when participants spoke. The second phase of training occurs in June.

In early March, Microsoft’s Asian Partners in Learning team gathered 80 participants from a dozen Asia-Pacific countries to provide the first phase of the Peer Coaching Master Trainer Training. Six PSCTLT staff members provided five days of training at the Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort at Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia.

Participants learned how the Peer Coaching program builds the human infrastructure needed to integrate technology and create engaging learning activities. Participants left with action plans to implement Peer Coaching in their country. The second phase of training will occur at the end of August.
