In this article a didactical framework for conferences is presented, which is based on methodological key-concepts of philosophical practice. This framework is outlined in a more manual-like style and illustrated in terms of a short case study regarding the proceedings of the 8th Nordic Conference for Philosophical Practice, which took place in April 2018 in Oslo, Norway. The case is based on the personal experience of the author, as well as on empirical data gathered in the form of a qualitative questionnaire, that was filled out at the end of the conference by the participants. The article concludes with a discussion about the potentials of philosophical practice beyond the scope of counseling and mere group dialogues.
