Since the inception of the 2030 Agenda, higher education institutions have begun to expand their social and environmental commitments and responsibilities, including 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially for SDG 4 of the agenda, to provide quality education. Recently, in the landscape of scientific literature, there has been an increase in research calling for more active teaching methods over the great hegemonic traditional teaching methods in higher education. In the field of education, debates and reflections are becoming more frequent, emphasizing the need to implement differentiated teaching methods in order to find better strategies to meet the emerging social and professional environment. The aim of this study was to investigate perceptions and sustainability practices of teachers of the Pedagogy course of a private institution of higher education located in Natal-RN, aiming at the implementation of gamification in teaching-learning. Employing principles of a qualitative research with a case study design, applied and theoretically based; it also followed procedures of documentary and curricular analysis with the Pedagogy course and survey of primary data from the application of an online questionnaire to 15 teachers of the course, which was submitted to data and content analysis. The results showed the inexistence of awareness in relation to the subject and lack of didactic materials, sustainability actions in the educational field, as well as the absence of continuing education courses on sustainability mediated from active methodologies that allow intellectual independence and the overcoming of a hidden curriculum of unsustainability in the formation of professionals. However, it can also be considered a certain comfortableness on the part of teachers in relation to waiting for some training from the educational institution, for not seeking ways to eliminate these adversities in their classroom routines. In summary, the study enabled the construction of a continuing education course for teachers through the insertion of gamification-based learning, aiming to support the training and construction of social-ecological knowledge in the face of socialecological crises through gamified elements in order to perform meaningful and innovative learning, training socially critical professionals facing a dynamic learning in teacher training. Seeking to transform its activities into living teaching and learning practices, motivating students and making them creative and protagonists.
