“Collaboratorium” represents a new way of working together, and is best defined by looking at its three word roots. The Latin pre-fix “co” means together, mutually, in common, while the word “labor-at” is a synonym for work, while the suffix “orium” denotes a location, often an open, transparent, environment. So, co / labor-at / orium = together / work / in an open location.At the Michael G. DeGroote Health Leadership Academy, we embrace the word collaboratorium as our charter for how we work. By collaborating and working together in an open space, we commit ourselves to creating an environment of discovery and ideation in which new education and research helps to build knowledge and widen perspectives; an environment of openness with our colleagues and the community, in which ideas and research are validated, shared and debated.
