Last Lecture 2019

Adam Pinkoski, Last Lecturer

The nominations for the 2019 Last Lecturer are in. The students have spoken, and their chosen instructor to deliver a lecture that throws away the syllabus and goes off-book is the Faculty of Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation’s Adam Pinkoski!

It’s no surprise Pinkoski’s students describe him as “engaging,” “hilarious” and “next level.” This dedicated Human Anatomy instructor finds creative and entertaining ways to present course material, including humour, pop culture references and rap lyrics.

Hear from Pinkoski at the 2019 Last Lecture to find out more about human anatomy, mental health and rapping.

About the Last Lecture Series: Inspiring Education

The Last Lecture asks one of the most amazing educators on campus to answer one question: If this were your last time to address a group of students, what would you say to them? The Last Lecture is an opportunity for the broader UAlberta community to hear from a favourite faculty member.

The concept of a “last lecture” became nationally recognized in 2007 with Dr. Randy Pausch, who gave his last lecture speech on Sept. 18, 2007, at Carnegie Mellon University.
