The Institute of Learning and Teaching was created in 2010 by the International School of Geneva (Ecolint). It offers professional training and pedagogy-related events to Ecolint staff and to the public. The pedagogical mission of the Institute is focused on the following goals:

Encouraging continuing professional education within the school community.

Publicly sharing Ecolint's expertise in international education, where we have been a pioneer since 1924.

Promoting the concept of education for peace, a fundamental concept at Ecolint.

Fostering pedagogical innovation and disseminating the results of research in the field of education.

The institute also publishes a research journal and a blog.
