This article describes and evaluates work undertaken as part of ATEE-RDC19, an exploration of using scenarios to enhance students' learning in teacher education. Action research was carried out with students who were following a module entitled National Curriculum and Beyond on an Education Studies degree. Students discussed and devised a scenario for 2020 and the need for the curriculum in schools to prepare students for life in the future. New curricula were devised to address the needs presented by the scenarios then justified, presented to and discussed with peers. Students completed questionnaires regarding their opinions of the use of this learning and teaching strategy. Students expressed their wholehearted approval for this kind of learning even though many had found the process difficult. They agreed that the use of scenarios had enabled them to widen their thinking about the curriculum and become more responsible for their own learning.
