- This paper explores the playful use of disciplinary discourses in a Capstone unit where both the students and teaching staff are working in trans-disciplinary teams. The focus of the classes is for students to investigate business issues through the use of cases where a Team Based Learning (TBL) approach is used (Michaelson, Knight & Fink, 2004). An important observation we have made is the way disciplinary discourses are changing, particularly through the impact of social networking and the role of peers in this dynamic site. To explore the ways our students are socialized, and knowledge is acquired and shared in trans-disciplinary discourses in the Capstone unit, we focus on a reflective blog that was established on the University Website Blackboard. We plan to show the impact of this reflective tool as an extension of TBL, as an assessment task in a formal academic setting, and to highlight the hybrid discourses that emerge, thus forming a bridge to the professional discourses of the workplace.
