ANSUT - Precarious U -

Across Canada, it is estimated that over 50% of university courses are taught by instructors whose jobs are not permanent (Basen, 2014). These instructors, variously termed “contract”, “part-time” or “adjunct” faculty, “limited-term appointments” or “sessionals” (among other titles), are paid either on a per-course basis or a prorated annual salary. In most cases, they are paid only for teaching, and must apply individually for every course they wish to teach.
