Dr. Julie Byrne

Assistant Professor (Social Studies)

 


Julie is Assistant Professor in Online Education and Development in the School of Social Work and Social Policy. She is also the Course Director for the Postgraduate Diploma in Social Policy and Practice, Trinity's first wholly online programme. She studied business, specialising in training and development and human resource management, at Dublin City University and University College Dublin where she graduated with a first class honours degree. Her doctoral thesis at the University of Limerick focused on the objective and subjective dimensions of professional careers. The career as a concept spans many occupations and professions and this has facilitated Julie's work with a variety of professions including engineers, managers and health and social care professionals. Julie came to Trinity in 2009 to work in the National Institute for Intellectual Disability where she coordinated the successful €1.5 million euro grant from Atlantic Philanthropies and was also Acting Director. Julie was previously Director of Academic Programmes at National College of Ireland where she also lectured in Human Resource Management and Development. In addition to her academic role Julie also provides consulting services to professional bodies and regulators on education, training and continuing professional development matters. Her research interests are professional careers, management of human service organisations and online learning and education.
