The teaching method, entitled "Community as Extended Classroom" (CeC), is the theme of this presentation. CeC is a trans-disciplinary pedagogical method in teaching subjects of cities, health, populations and society. The objective of CeC is to enable students engaged in community settings to understand and work with complexity, applying theoretical approaches to showcase collaborations that bridge knowledge and societies. Academics and researchers extol the benefits of virtual teaching and the advantages of community engagement in applying trans-disciplinary theoretical approaches to teaching and learning. The presentation affirms the value of collaboration between health professionals, community, and urban designers and architects with a view to enhancing students' learning experiences in real-life situations, enabling praxis to occur, i.e. where theory is translated into action to enable changes in communities and society. CeC bridges communities and students at the crossroad of experience and learning theories. Students' evaluations confirm the impact of experiential understanding, learning and knowing within a social and cultural context. Adopting a trans-disciplinary approach of CeC is crossing various disciplines at Robert Gordon University.
