So, what types of teaching do we support?

Active learning involves non-passive engagement by students in the learning process.   

Activity-based learning involves fieldwork, public service, community-based research and internships in conjunction with in-class work.

If your lesson, lecture, project, assignment, discussion section, etc. is unusual or interactive in any way at all, it probably qualifies.
