Observational Learning Stuff - In Case You Missed It

Hi all,

In one of my classes today, we ran out of time before the final two slides were shown. Although I am confident you can get what you need from reading on Observational Learning, I thought I'd post them here you those students don't feel like they are at a disadvantage for having missed them going into tomorrow's test.

The two slides (plus title slide) are below, followed by a video clip hyperlinked in the first slide that shows footage of the model and one participant in Bandura's Bobo Doll study.

Below is the video clip demonstrating what was seen in Bandura's study: If children watch an adult model beating up the poor "Bobo Doll," they imitate the behavior. This research provided support for the idea that aggression can be learned through observation.
