Observational Learning

> According to the course text, learning is defined as a “relatively
> permanent behavior change in an organism’s behavior due to experience.”
> (Myers, p. 263). By following the scientific process, psychologists have
> made great strides in understanding how you learn.  Pavlov’s seminal
> experiment introduced the idea of classical conditioning, learning that
> occurs when you learn to link two or more stimuli and anticipate events.
> Classical conditioning paved the way for behaviorism.
> Operant conditioning, like classical conditioning, is another form of
> associative learning. Operant conditioning is a type of learning in which
> behavior is encouraged if followed by a reinforcer and decreased if
> followed by punishment.  Although insightful, conditioning principles are
> not the only way you learn. Observing others is arguably one of the most
> powerful ways to learn.
> Some of your earliest learning experiences are a result of observation.
> Unfortunately, not everything you observe and model is positive. Antisocial
> observational learning may lead to unintended destructive behavior.
> a description of a time when you learned a new skill from observational
> learning. *Describe the environment, other people present, and motivation
> for learning. What role, if any, did conditioning play in your learning?
> Reference websites from the Learning Resources as part of your response.
