Educational Game - Bacteria Game

An innovative educational game Bacteria Game was held as a pilot at TMA. Students of the third, fourth, and fifth semesters and professors of the academy participated in the game.

Bacteria Game is an innovative educational game developed at the Sorbonne University in Paris with the support of the French Association of Microbiologists.

The principle of the game is simple - the players must connect funny pictures of clinically important bacteria with their corresponding characteristics (morphological features, virulence, source of infection, target organs, appropriate antibiotic, natural and acquired resistance to antibiotics) and at the same time, by the same principle, identify the opponent's bacteria. French colleagues believe that such an educational game will allow students to consolidate/organize knowledge about bacteria and appropriate antibiotic therapy to prevent the irrational use of antibiotics in the future, which is one of the main reasons for the increase in the number of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, one of the global health problems.

TMA students and teachers participating in the game also find the game fun and help organize knowledge, discover individual educational needs, and receive feedback.
