Supporting Translational Research and Innovation
Short-term visiting educational researchers
DEFI is fortunate to draw from the expertise of leading academics from around the globe through our DEFI STRIx researcher programme. STRIx researchers are invited to work and study in Cambridge for one to four weeks, during which time they are embedded alongside DEFI staff at Hughes Hall.
Building digital education knowledge and community
The STRIx programme allows DEFI to explore innovative education models from a wide range of international visiting academics. While in Cambridge, each STRIx researcher facilitates a talk or workshop, expanding the academic experience of staff and students in Cambridge, while futhering connections to other academic institutions around the world.
What does STRIx mean?
We chose STRIx as the acronym for Supporting Translational Research and Innovation, which is the main goal of this programme. We added an x to make strix, which is latin for owl, the emblem of Hughes Hall. And, through trans disciplinary collaboration with our STRIx researchers, we hope to take research in the field of digital education to the x power!
