Observational Learning Observational Learning – when an organism’s responding is influenced by the observation of others, who are called models (a person whose behaviour is observed by another) - Albert Bandura - “representation of the connection between action and consequence is an important determinant of whether or not a change will occur” - He said that both classical and operant conditioning can take place vicariously through observational learning Basic Processes Bandura proposed 4 key ideas that are crucial in observational learning: Attention - to learn through observation, you must pay attention to another person’s behaviour and its consequences Retention – store a mental representation of what you witnessed in your memory Reproduction – enacting a modelled response depends on your ability to reproduce that response by converting stored memory into overt behavior.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
