Paulette Flore about her Last Lecture:
“After spending twelve years studying and working at Tilburg University, I made the decision to leave Academia. Twelve years of studying psychological experiments, working on psychological experiments and writing about psychological experiments. Twelve years of losing and regaining faith in science. Twelve years in which my passion for methods and statistics slowly but steadily grew (believe it or not, this did not happen overnight). In this last lecture I like to share the most important lessons I have learned these twelve years about (psychological) science, about the university and about myself. A personal lecture, with a lot of attention for psychological science, the replication crisis in psychology and just a tiny little bit of statistics.”
Paulette Flore is a researcher at the Department of Methodology and Statistics of the Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences.
She is currently coordinating and teaching several Bachelor courses (e.g., Correlational Research Methods, Introduction to Statistics), supervising PhD students and Research Master students and carrying out her own research (main interests: psychometrics, statistical modelling, replicability and reproducibility in psychological science).
A ‘last lecture’ is a lecture in which a professor lectures to a group of students as if it was their last lecture. The professor answers questions like ‘What would you try to impart to the world if you knew it was your last chance? or ‘If this were your last time to address a group of students, what would you say?
