In one class which I was involved in for 19 semesters as a guest lecturer and tutor, they slowly phased out our guest lectures until the class coordinator presented those lectures (they did not have any first-hand knowledge of the content).  The coordinator retired early and the new person who took over (who had no topic experience) hired fresh sessional staff who had no topic experience. The convenor did not contact the previous sessional tutors – we prompted them to find out what was happening – they did not reply until 2 weeks before the semester began. That’s what the 19 semesters “teaching experience” and loyalty to the department gets you: Nothing!
