Biography

Noel Carroll is a Lecturer in Business Information Systems and Programme Director for the MSc. in Information Systems Management (ISM). He is also a researcher with Lero – the Irish Software Research Centre, National University of Ireland, Galway. He received his PhD from the University of Limerick in 2012. Noel also held a research post in the Netherlands at Delft University of Technology (Technische Universiteit Delft) in 2008 within the faculty of Technology, Policy and Management (TPM).

His research interests include seeking ways to support organisations in developing transformation strategies in software development, digital innovation, and health informatics for multinationals, SMEs, and start-ups, for example, Fidelity Investments (multinational financial services) and the Health Service Executive (Irish health service). His research is supported by Science Foundation Ireland grant 13/RC/2094. He has edited special issues, published, chaired, and reviewed for leading international journals and conferences in his field.

Noel has recently completed a Diploma in Academic Practice with Centre for Excellence in Learning & Teaching (CELT) at NUIG and currently undertaking a Masters in Academic Practice. Noel has been nominated for the President’s Awards for Teaching Excellence 2020 and the Dean’s Award for Inclusive Teaching (2019 and 2020). Noel had also participated in an Irish Universities Association (IUA) pilot study on “Enhancing Digital Teaching and Learning”, an initiative under the European Framework for the Digital Competence of Educators (DigCompEdu). He enjoys opportunities for industry engagement and additional interdisciplinary initiatives in teaching. For example, in 2019, Noel co-organised an international Summer School in Visual Analytics (in collaboration with Insight and the Moore Institute): http://vass.datascienceinstitute.ie/
