I’m so beyond excited to be back and to introduce you to our two incredible guests Dr. Robert Hieronimus and Laura Cortner, the authors of “IT’S ALL IN THE MIND: Inside The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine vol.2. Robert R. Hieronimus, Ph.D., has been on a mission since 1968 to discover the hidden reality behind The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine. His 2002 book, co-authored with Laura E. Cortner, Inside the Yellow Submarine, was called “an indispensable companion to the movie” (Animation World), and he has lectured on the subject around the world including at Abbey Road in London. In 1969 Hieronimus founded AUM, the first state-approved school of esoteric studies in the country. He received his Ph.D. from Saybrook Graduate School in 1981, and his doctoral research on the symbolism of the Reverse of the Great Seal of the United States has been used by the White House, State Department, Department of the Interior, and published in the Congressional Record. He is interviewed frequently on the History Channel, Discovery, Nat Geo, BBC, etc. His radio interview program, 21st Century Radio®, exploring consciousness and alternate realities, has been on the air since 1988, the longest-running of its kind.
Laura E. Cortner has collaborated with Dr. Bob Hieronimus on several books that have been translated into Japanese, German, French, Russian, and Spanish. Also writing partner and editor for Dr. Zohara Hieronimus and 21st Century Radio®, where she serves as Executive Producer, Cortner graduated with honors from Goucher College in Maryland, where she majored in English and Spanish. She also administrates the Ruscombe Mansion Community Health Center in Baltimore Maryland, the oldest holistic facility on the East Coast. In addition to Inside the Yellow Submarine (2002), Cortner and Hieronimus co-authored Founding Fathers, Secret Societies (2006), United Symbolism of America (2008) and most recently Secret Life of Lady Liberty: Goddess in the New World (2016), an historical and symbolic analysis of the Statue of Liberty from feminist and Native American perspectives.

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, teaching and learning has shifted towards online course delivery. Teachers might face challenges not only gaining technical skills, but also re-conceptualizing their courses to be effective in an online context. So, I thought I would share recent research about some of the challenges that educators face while teaching online to decrease feelings of insecurity and imposter syndrome. After that, I go through some research-based pedagogical tips so that you can teach online with more competence and confidence than before. I'm no expert. Just sharing some research on critical + creative + collaborative online practices. Stay safe, stay well, and goodluck!
