I think presentations should be challenging and interactive. There are many ways this could be done, e.g with open ended questions, practical problems, asking for a vote eg a 24 year old potential cornea donor died in Intensive therapy, he was in near drowning 5 days previously but resuscitated. Cause of death Cardiac arrest no sepsis. Would you take the corneas if yes why if no why. What other mitigating factors may be present.
Would the decision lie with the RP of the tissue establishment or the clinician?

I think presenting such cases will put donor selection in the practical context.
In now my long experience in training just doing a PPT which is more than 20 min without engaging the audience is not very productive.
One can also think of smaller group workshops presenting cases and scenarios in a plenary
