[6] As a pilot project for the academic year 2018/2019, an optional Antimicrobial Digital Badge activity to enrich the understanding of factors related to antibacterial resistance development was integrated into the course. To prepare students to complete the activity, continuous discourse on aspects of drug resistance took place throughout the semester, including summative grade components of a written essay and in-class group oral presentation [Table 1]. [7,8] With this in mind, not only did this activity offer students the advantage of a greater appreciation of the learning objectives and the opportunity to articulate their knowledge of a significant global health concern, but also the reward of grades.
