Cross-listing sections taught by different instructors

In many of our Health Sciences programs, we have multiple sections of one course. Some are taught by our full-time faculty and some by adjuncts. To ensure the integrity and quality of the course content, all content is created and posted by the full-time faculty member. In our previous LMS we created a "COMBO" course that took all of those sections and put them into one course so the full-time faculty could post the content, but the adjunct faculty still did all of the grading for their section. With cross-listing, only instructors assigned to the course can cross-list. NOTE: What we called "sections" in our old LMS are actually considered separate courses in Canvas. We cannot add the adjuncts as an official instructor to the full-time instructor's course due to credit count. We could add them as a coordinator, but that does not move the students into the course. Have any of you found a workaround for this?
