Observational learning is formally described as the systematic process of observation and recording of information to formulate principles. It's generally acknowledged as the basis of ancient science and learning. This is basic scientific method, and one of the primary methods of experimentation. Even in modern science, a process is observed, developed, and then subjected to verification and review. Observational learning is both the method of research and the basis of criticism. |
Observational Learning involves learning four separate processes. These are: Attention, Retention, Production and Motivation.
Examples of Observational Learning:
Zoology is a primary example of observational learning in the fields of behaviorism, ecology, and habitat analysis. Observation is conducted at multiple levels to form a picture of the whole environment of the subject.|
