I have adopted a very hands-on policy in teaching all my courses that make extensive use of available computing resources. I have been teaching mostly applied courses, and in order to engage students in the underlying theoretical concepts, I demonstrate and encourage students to immediately test a theoretical concept which not only results in better understanding but also a higher level of engagement.
