ASHFORD OMM 625 Week 1 DQ 1 Social Learning

Social Learning. Even though social learning is an extension of operant conditioning (e.g., behavior is a function of consequences), it emphasizes the environment in which learning takes place. Social learning emphasizes that people can learn through observation and direct experience. Theorist Albert Bandura, for example, used this theory to explain juvenile delinquency. Young children learn aggressive responses from observing others. Social learning theory believes that learning occurs largely through modeling; the model directly influences the learner. It is the task of the model to transfer the necessary skill or knowledge onto the learning. Please provide examples of this theory in practice. Have you observed other employees modeling behavior as they learned new jobs? Explain. Please respond to at least two of your fellow students’ postings.
