"Designer" role should appear with a standard name in People

When a user is added to a Canvas course as a "Designer", they appear in the People section as a "Course Designer". This behavior is unique to the Designer role, and creates confusion when it appears that someone has a custom role in a particular Canvas course, rather than a Canvas-standard role. "Designer" should function like any other role in Canvas, and display the same name in the People section as it does when adding users or managing roles/permissions.
