Enhancing undergraduate pharmacology course content through antimicrobial stewardship digital badge integration

Maxine D Gossell-Williams.

Universities are continuously reviewing offerings to ensure relevance for producing the distinctive graduate. The antimicrobial stewardship digital badge was introduced as an optional activity to support basic medical sciences students in a pharmacology course. It was aimed to help students understand the development of antibacterial drug resistance and encourage them to share their awareness of this global public health concern. Students were prepared through 12 weeks of semester in-class, course coordinator directed activities to make an oral presentation on the responsible use of antibacterial drugs. On completion, students were awarded the digital badge, but also earn extra points toward summative grades. Only 10 of 31 registered students completed the digital badge requirements. While this was an innovative activity to promote experiential learning, the low level of student participation was unexpected.
