"Coyote" - the new magazine on Youth, training & Europe HRE list readers may be interested to know of this new magazine which has just gone on-line: http://www.coe.fr/youth/english/Coyote/issue00/contents.htm What is it? Across Europe in youth work a growing number of people work as trainers, for associations or services or independently. Often they work in contact with only a limited circle of colleagues. With the increasing prominence of youth worker training and the rising need for trainers, also the wish to share information, ideas and opinions about training concepts, methodologies and realities is expressed more and more often. The European Commission and the Council of Europe are concerned about this situation and decided to take a step in responding to it. So Coyote, the magazine on "youth training Europe" was created. An exchange about training concepts and opinions becomes even more important in a European setting, where knowledge and sensitivity about vastly different realities is required. Strengthening networking among trainers is one of the initiatives promoted by the partnership between the Council of Europe and the European Commission in the youth field. As one of the tools of this co-operation, Coyote is addressed to trainers, youth workers and others interested in issues around training and youth work all over Europe. The magazine aims to provide a forum to share some of the issues that trainers face in their work. It also wants to inform about current developments in this field, especially at European level, and thus to promote the value of European level training for youth workers. A vast range of subjects comes to mind when thinking about issues of relevance for training: Working in an international team how is that different from working in a national team? How to make the links between international training and local practice? Supervision for trainers, Using games in intercultural learning, The challenge of explaining terminology used in international youth work, Training challenges and specificities in working with disadvantaged young people, Training via Internet: what are the possibilities? When is a trainer a "trainer"? When do people learn- what is learning? Values in training and training aims, The use of simulations in training, How do you measure training results? The cultural dimension in training methodology in multicultural meetings ... and many, many more. In every issue Coyote deals with some issues related to training. Most articles are written by trainers from different parts of Europe and having different experiences. Besides, some articles are written by people who do not work in the field of youth worker training but in areas related to youth, training or education. Some others will present the perspective of the institutions on relevant current developments. Besides the thematic articles, series under the headings of Marker (which deals with one specific training issue in each edition), Coyote Meets Trainers and Training Methodologies form the regular backbone of this magazine. Under Flipchart readers can put up and find announcements related to training, such as upcoming events, new publications, inquiries, new ideas etc. After the publication of the first experimental issue of Coyote, no. 0, this July, Coyote will next come out in November of this year. From the year 2000 on, it should be issued 3 times yearly (in February, June and November). Coyote is available on the website of the Youth Directorate at http://www.coe.fr/youth/english/Coyote/issue00/contents.htm We hope that Coyote will give you new insights into some of the diverse realities, concepts and practices of youth worker training on this continent.
