The Carnegie Mellon University professor Randy Pausch popularized the idea of the last lectures.
Independent of our own last lectures due to retirement or death, we are all giving last-lectures—the last
lectures we will ever give to various students. I recently gave a “last lecture” to students at the University
of Utah as the last lecture of the semester course. My twenty-minute last lecture drew upon the wonderful
advice I had received from teachers and mentors over the years. In this five-minute talk I will rapidly
recite the highlights of 30 plus years of advice, correction, cajoling, and encouragement that I have had
the good fortune of receiving.
