Yes, it would be a shame! Combining these techniques with good curriculum design makes lessons, labs and homework work in concert to both build skills (rather than assume students come in with them) and show how the abstract concepts are needed to make the product a reality.

I have to admit that I didn't do this on my own. I had a lot of good mentoring from my education collegues in how to actually plan and design effective courses. They helped me break out of teaching things the way I had been taught and really "engineer" the class to achieve my desired outcome!
