Physiotherapy (pre-registration) courses have been incorporating community engagement activities for students. One of these activities involve sessions within the community and those community settings are referred to as Community Class Rooms. Students, service users and teaching staff are involved in the organisation and delivery of sessions within the community. We would like to share our experiences and present our perspectives about the Community Class Rooms to colleagues within the University. We hope this presentation will be valuable to staff who would like to develop similar community engagement opportunities for their students. In this collaborative presentation, we intend to cover the following topics and share experiences and perspectives of students, service user and teaching team.
• Activities completed during the Community Class Rooms.
• Their purpose and position within the modules, courses and community.
• How are they organised and where they are delivered?
• Challenges faced during the Covid pandemic, and adaptations made.
• Measures implemented for returning to face-to-face delivery.
• The current developments (diverse placements) and future directions.
