The University of Sussex is developing a suite of online distance learning programmes working in partnership with Pearson. Building on a tradition of critical pedagogy and intellectual challenge we wanted to design a learning experience which encapsulated our educational traditions, but exploited the rich features of our new Canvas VLE. In this session we will outline how we used 'Design Thinking' with a range of institutional stakeholders to create an engaging and challenging learning experience within Canvas. The finalised learning design provides a scalable framework for curriculum and content development which focuses on utilising core functionality in Canvas. The learning experience is one of exploration, connectedness and critical thinking. We will demonstrate how our learners experience the design within our Canvas environment.
