Title: Open Lab Time as a Strategy to Increase Female (and Male) Retention
Url: http://www.iwitts.org/proven-practices/topics/retention/278-open-lab-...
Publisher: National Institute for Women in Trades, Technology and Science
Description: This report explains how El Camino College used additional open lab time for their welding and electronics classes to aid all students and especially female students. This is because "female students come to classes with less hands-on experience than their male counterparts." El Camino College also added flexibility to the lab times to allow students who were taking night classes to use the lab.
