Article 21: Off-Campus Teaching

21.01 While the Parties recognize that the majority of the work of Dalhousie University will take place within the campus of the University, including affiliated hospitals, laboratories and other related facilities, the University may schedule instruction in locations other than the regular campus.

21.02 Off-campus teaching may be assigned in accordance with existing arrangements within Departments or other teaching units made prior to the signing of this Collective Agreement. Any arrangements for assigning off-campus teaching responsibilities to Members made subsequent to the signing of this Collective Agreement shall be made within Departments or other teaching units and shall include provision for the agreement of the Member or Members affected. Members whose employment includes responsibility for off-campus teaching on a regular or continuing basis shall have such duties set out in their individual letters of appointment.

21.03 Any Member teaching in a location other than the regular campus and requiring transportation from the regular campus, shall be reimbursed the actual, reasonable costs of travel as well as other incidental costs arising directly from such travel, on a basis to be agreed in advance between the Member and the Dean or other appropriate administrative officer.

21.04 When a Member teaches in a location other than the regular campus, any additional commitments of time, such as for travel, shall result in a corresponding reduction of the Member’s other duties or in a recognition of overload teaching as provided in Article 20.

21.05 The Parties recognize that the University may enter into agreements with other institutions providing for the sharing of facilities, Programmes, or students, including the admission of students from other institutions to scheduled instruction within Dalhousie University and the assignment of Members to provide instruction within the campus or facilities of another institution. Members may be assigned teaching responsibilities in another institution in accordance with existing arrangements within Departments or other teaching units made prior to the signing of this Collective Agreement. Any arrangements for assigning teaching responsibilities in another institution to Members made subsequent to the signing of this Collective Agreement shall be made within Departments or other teaching units and shall include provision for the agreement of the Member or Members affected.

21.06 In the case of a Member teaching within another institution, Clauses 21.03 and 21.04 shall apply if travel or relocation is required.
