    Abstract

    This chapter discusses a teaching strategy called “Developing Scenario Learning” (DSL) in which students initially consider a challenging real-life scenario and then discuss their assumptions
    and approaches to this scenario. After this phase, the scenario
    develops in some new, often unexpected way and students together reflect further on their assumptions and any new approaches required by the changed situation. The paper explores how DSL may be applied to theological education, particularly in contexts such as training for ministry and ethics. It also considers the potential use of DSL as a repeating structure for an entire unit of study. The paper includes an example of DSL for an online theology unit on ministry and practice using the “LAMS” software, and a template of the example that can be adapted for other theological education topics.
