Online Submission, Paper presented at the ATEE Spring University Conference (Vilnius, Lithuania, May 3-5, 2012)
The sustainable development of society has attracted a lot of research efforts. A strategic aspect to the society's evolution is introduced by the game theory (Fernandez, 2011, p. 1). The research question is as follows: how to organize the process of teaching and learning in education for sustainable development? The aim of the research is to model the process of teaching and learning in education for sustainable development. The present research involves a process of analyzing the meaning of the key concepts "education for sustainable development", "game theory", "social situation". Moreover, the study demonstrates how the key concepts are related to the idea of "the process of teaching and learning". The empirical research was carried out in the "English for Academic Purposes" course of Riga Teacher Training and Educational Management Academy in 2008-2009. The sample included 10 students. The findings of the research allow modelling the process of teaching and learning in education for sustainable development. Directions of further research are proposed.
