    Problem-Based Learning (PBL) and role plays are examples of teaching strategies that can foster student engagement and reflection. This paper describes 'Developing Scenario Learning' (DSL), which combines elements of PBL and role plays to encourage students to reflect on different possible approaches to scenarios that they may encounter in future work. A distinguishing element of DSL is that the initial scenario allows for multiple interpretations and potential actions, and following a period of discussion, the scenario 'develops' through the presentation of new information that changes the dynamics of the scenario in ways that may require different potential actions, as well as reconsideration of assumptions made during earlier discussion. This paper outlines a number of different DSL structures and provides examples of their implementation using LAMS.
