This session explores the implications of how we dress in the classroom. The image that attire conveys, and how attire impacts our own sense of self, consciously and unconsciously reflects our own identities and reveals issues of identity dissonance. Finally we examine how different attire can lead to different student outcomes or different forms of success. We examine literature from management, social psychology, education, communication and others to lead discussion that we hope will allow participants to better understand and/or question how and why they dress as they do and how that can determine success… in their own terms.
