Flip The Coin Over: Education Edition

www.taacker.com
“Flip the Coin over” is a phrase I use frequently to tell myself and others to try to always see both sides of a story—see the bigger picture. Like coins have two sides, topics and stories have more than one side as well. We use pro/con, likes/dislikes, advantages/disadvantages as the foundation for many topics of conversation. In this podcast, that premise is used in the area of higher education, with the intent to help students transition into and out of college life. Topics include: finances, academics, personal growth/self-worth, social life, and more. Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/flipthecoinover/support
