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 September 18, 2007 at Carnegie Mellon.
