This presentation provided an overview of a recently released online resource, the Conceptual Toolkit for Language Teaching Practitioners (https://ctltp.wp.st-andrews.ac.uk/), with a particular focus on aspects of the resource that are relevant to the language teaching context in Japan. The session provided background on why the resource was developed, the choice of delivery format, and how it is intended to help teachers of any language to enhance their teaching practice. It also explored the five concepts covered in the toolkit (language, dynamicity, ideology, decolonisation, and identity), extrapolating key points of consideration for language teaching practitioners in Japan.
