As the title indicates, this chapter is a primer on practices. It begins by discussing practice theory generally but mostly presents my own ideas. The topics addressed are practices, activities, and social phenomena, with special attention to temporality and the unfolding of practices. The chapter concludes with comments about conducting research on practices. My goal is to provide practice theoretical stimulation to readers interested in practice-based education and research.
