About

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?

The event is inspired by the last lecture given by Professor Randy Pausch at Carnegie Mellon University upon his diagnosis with terminal cancer. In his wonderful speech ‘Achieving Your Childhood Dreams’ Pausch alternated between insights on his academic field, valuable encounters he made in life, personal choices and experiences, inspirational life lessons, and important events that guided him on his path of life.

We are cooperating with Studium Generale for this event series and are very happy to have Alkeline van Lenning and Tessa Leesen hold a team-taught last lecture on the topic: When resilience falls short: Students at a loss. For more informaiton click here.
