What is the best way to set dates in a Master Course so when things get copied to new sections, it adjusts dates to the new term?

Bringing over an old question from the old forums,

"We use the master course model, and use the API to copy our courses for new sections. That way the master never gets mucked up if an instructor tinkers at the section level. Is there a way we can set the dates in the master course so that when sections are created, it generates the appropriate dates for the term?

Right now we are manually adjusting the dates in the master so it copies correctly. There must be a better way!"
