    Episode #29: Andrew Murray on Learning "How to University"

    Episode #29: Andrew Murray on Learning "How to University"

    Andrew Murray came to UVic in 1990 to do an MA. After beginning a PhD in 1992, he gradually morphed into a sessional instructor and then a continuing sessional. He taught his first class for the English Department in Fall 1995 and has been teaching ever since. In 2014, Andrew was hired as an Assistant Teaching Professor with his primary responsibilities being in the Division of Academic Writing, now the Academic and Technical Writing Program. Andrew's doctoral dissertation was on representations of reading in Chaucer, but his primary focus now is teaching, particularly ATWP 101, ATWP 135 and ENGL 146 and ENGL 200A. Andrew brings energy, enthusiasm, and kindness to every class he teaches. His interests include Chaucer, the pedagogy of teaching writing and literature, contemporary fiction in English, and the Arsenal Football Club.

Important conversations

I really love this podcast! The interviews are so relatable and the topics are relevant to student struggles. I’m a huge fan and definitely anticipate more episodes in the future. I’m so glad I’ve found them.

Keep Swimming

Thanks for this podcast. We all need the reminder to keep going when things don’t go the way we want. It’s not that the moment isn’t bad, but it’s just one moment. It will pass. It’s how we respond to the moment, how we choose to respond, that matters the most in shaping our lives and who we become.
