How to set up multiple sections in a course with multiple teachers?

I have been searching, with limited luck, on how to set up one course in Canvas with multiple instructors, each with their own section of students. I have found this article:

What are the most popular Section ➜ Course organizational structure used in Canvas?

What we are looking to do is have our nursing clinical students all sign up in our SIS for one clinical class, but these students go to different sites and have different clinical instructors. So, each site/teacher would have to have its own section. We are looking at possibly 8 teachers with 4-6 students each. 


Does anyone have any experience with this? Any drawbacks, things to look out for?


Thank you in advance for any tips/advice!
