About Candi

I provide administrative support to my HEDC colleagues and manage the administrative processes for our professional development programmes for academic staff, tutors and demonstrators. I’m also on the administration team for the Tertiary Education Research in New Zealand (TERNZ) Conference when it is our turn to run it.

Another item that falls under my administrative umbrella is HEDC’s postgraduate studies programme – our Master of Higher Education and Postgraduate Certificate and Diploma courses – along with the associated secretarial responsibility for our Interdivisional Board of Studies. Everyday duties include anything and everything from conference travel bookings for my HEDC colleagues and our visitors to problem-solving the various issues that arise, technical or otherwise, for staff and postgraduate students, not to mention maintaining a close relationship with the telephone and email.

An unabashed lover of language in all its linguistic and literary glory, I’ve completed the three Te Reo papers here at Otago, which I enjoyed tremendously. In the past I’ve studied French, German and Russian, both languages and literature, and confess to having a particular fondness for poetry. I’m always up for a good movie or book discussion.

Should you need any help or advice about any of the activities mentioned above, you’re more than welcome to contact me at candi.young@otago.ac.nz or phone me on (03) 471 6385.
