        • They memorise the behaviour they have observed
      • 3. Imitation
        • They practice the behaviour themselves
      • 4. Motivation
    • Modelling
      • The people we choose to learn from are called models
      • Don't imitate anyone's behaviour

          • Same age
          • Same sex
        • People they want to be like
          • Celebrities
      • Observing consequences of behaviour
        • 4. Motivation
    • Research
      • observational and imitation learning
        • Bandura
          • Experimental
          • Observation

      • Behaviour is learnt through observation and imitation
      • Modelling is copying behaviour of people whom we identify with
      • Identification with someone involves a desire to be like them
        • Modelling is copying behaviour of people whom we identify with
        • Leading to desire to imitate them
      • Reinforcement can be applied from observation of others and their actions
      • Cognitive processes are involved in between stimuli and response
        • Thinking and memory
    • Evaluation
      • Strengths
        • Takes into account factors ignored yb behaviourists
        • Practical applications
          • Showing good behaviour at school with models
            • Prefects
        • Combination of research - experimental and case study
        • Weaknesses
          • Reduces complex human behaviour to obeservation and imitation
            • Reductionist
