The Eugene D. Fanning Center for Business Communication at the University of Notre Dame marks its 20th anniversary this year. These two decades have witnessed dramatic changes in classroom technology - from blackboards to streaming video, for example. But even more important are the changes in the way communication is taught, says the center's director, James O'Rourke IV. "In the late '80s and early '90s, our emphasis was on document preparation and formatting, along with expressive, plain English," said O'Rourke.
