"A good teacher knows when to let the students learn by guided experimentation and when to educate the students through formal instruction—both have their place. Learning to use PowerPoint slide transitions is fun with a less structured approach, while learning to build data tables in SQL demands formal explanation. When I’ve hit that balance I enjoy the responses, like “So that’s how they do that!” or “I thought it was going to be harder than that!"
Eric Brockway is a Technical Instructor and Consultant who joined New Horizons in 2011 and has been an educator and technologist for 29 years. His teaching integrates blended modalities – from the traditional classroom to Online LIVE virtual learning and On-sites. Eric’s focus at New Horizons is a broad range of Business Intelligence tools. Tableau is at the top of the list, working with both standard curriculum and custom content. This often involves working with customers to determine their specific needs, mapping them to the appropriate courseware, and then blending required topics with custom requirements. On the Microsoft platform, and specifically, integration with SharePoint 2010, 2013 and/or 2016, Eric’s work includes customized SharePoint training for end users, power users, and developers, as well as consultative projects that coordinate the efforts of decision makers and IT personnel. Through years of working as a consultant, as well as a trainer, Mr. Brockway brings the real world into the classroom to build upon textbook theory. Instead of having his students merely memorize a set of steps to complete tasks, Eric strives to impart a working knowledge of the software’s design paradigm, so students can operate from a platform of overall understanding.
