The INLT was established at the International Symposium for Learning and Teaching Geography in Higher Education held in Honolulu in March 1999. Since then meetings have been held regularly at AAG annual conferences and at IGU congresses, with workshops at the IGU Congress in Glasgow (2004), the regional IGU congress in Brisbane (2006), and the AAG Annual Meeting in Washington, DC (2010). The outcomes from these workshops were published in the Journal of Geography in Higher Education.
