My style: Lecturer Seang Kealinda

While lecturers obviously have to prepare their lessons before going to class, they must also prepare their fashion. Fashion may not seem like a word people associate with lecturers. However, the lecturer can have a sense of fashion if they know how to balance style with professionalism.

Seang Kealinda, a 22-year-old English lecturer at Norton University, talked to LIFT about the clothes she wears at work.

“When teaching, we need to dress professionally,” said Kealinda, “I prefer wearing shirts and skirts at or below the knees, but not a short one because students can evaluate us by the way we dress.”

She added that she likes wearing any colour except blue, because blue clothes are for the university students.

Shoes are also important, because lecturers have to stand on their feet for long periods of time.

“We have to stand almost all the time when teaching, so flats are the easiest for me to teach and control the class in.”

She must also always wear a watch, she said, because there are many components in the lesson plan, and each component has a time limit, so wearing a watch helps her manage time.

She thinks that fashion is important for every lecturer, but it is important to dress professionally and avoid trying to look sexy. After all, lecturers are role models for students.

Together with the teaching methodology, the way of making up the outside appearance also plays an important part in providing students a good impression of the lecturer. Overall, the students will respond better to the lessons if they see that their lecturer has a sense of professionalism and style.
