Coronavirus, social injustice, political turmoil, zoom meetings, converting to online classes, and teaching in a "new normal." It has been a tough year. The world has changed rapidly this past year, and as practitioners in business communication, we have found ways to respond, adapt, and innovate. Our responses to these events will shape communication, both in and out of the classroom, for years to come.
