In this paper, we explore an example of practice-based education in the context of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, and consider this course initiative in relation to the professional design practices, into which the students are subsequently expected to enroll. We ask what type of insight (skills, knowledge, competences) the students may gain from exploring and analyzing practical aspects of professional architectural work. Applying case study research design and practice theories (e.g. actor-network theory) as the central implements to produce a written report in groups, the students are given a case and a contact person (architect, design consultant or other) as the point of departure of their exploration. As teachers at the course, called ‘Forms of Practice’, we use data from this context to explore the role the work and organization of professional architects may play in architectural education
