Rosie Dent-Spargo


I do UX, stakeholder engagement and project management on various projects in the TEL team. As well as this, I carry out research on co-design and technology-enhanced learning, writing papers and presenting at conferences.

My work involves collaborating with students, staff and faculty members to co-design myPAL and other development and research projects within Leeds Institute of Medical Education. I try and find new and creative ways to establish app requirements, using craft supplies and games to explore new ideas. I then work with the development team to incorporate the results of these design workshops into wireframes and eventually finished products, leading on user interface and systems design. My work spans the entire software development lifecycle - from ideation through to usability testing. Trained in Gestalt psychology, I am interested in design from a people-perspective and a lot of my work focusses on how the tools we make might impact our users
