Personal profile

Biography

Jill Murray is a lecturer and researcher at Macquarie University.  She teaches postgraduate units on pragmatics,  intercultural communication and the role of context  in language teaching and learning.  Her many years as a teacher and teacher educator have spurred her interest in both the teaching and learning of pragmatics, and the assessment of pragmatic competence in a range of specialist contexts (such as, most recently, overseas trained professionals seeking work in Australia.) She has also researched and published on other aspects of language test design and impact. Early in her career she lived and worked in Greece, and in 2015 she commenced a major research project investigating the experiences of Greek-Australians in homeland contexts. Jill also supervises research on language maintenance and shift in other community languages, and the presentation of pragmatic information in EFL, ESL and heritage language teaching materials.
