Typical Types of Presentations at Hitpoints & History
Workshops: Workshops are all about teaching a practical skill. They should have some immersive/hands on aspect to work with. A typical workshop length is one hour.
Lectures: A lecture is a prepared talk that you alone will give to an audience. At Hitpoints and History, a typical lecture length is 15-60 minutes.
Panel / Roundtables: A panel/roundtable discussion is talking to your friends or peers with an audience. Submissions for this type of presentation should include multiple people. A typical panel/roundtable discussion length is 1 hour.
Playthroughs / Let’s Play: A playthrough is playing a game by yourself (or with a teammate you bring), with commentary (historical OR game development). Think twitch — the audience might be able to interact but you should plan on playing the game alone. A typical playthrough length is 1 to 2 hours.
Tabletop sessions: A tabletop session is playing a game with friends! In this you will create a table top game (TTRPG/board game/or other) and allow audience members to self-select to join/play. The average tabletop session is 3 hours.
