The INLT was established at the International Symposium for Learning and Teaching Geography in Higher Education 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), the AAG in Washington DC (2010), and in conjunction with the CGGE at Bangalore, India (2012). Following peer-review, the outcomes from these workshops have been published in the Journal of Geography in Higher Education in Vols 30(1); 32(1); 35(3).
