Social cognitive theory distinguishes between enactive and vicarious learning
  • Enactive learning is learning by doing and experiencing the consequences of your actions (self-regulation of behavior, goal directed behavior, self-monitoring)
  • Vicarious learning is learning by observing others
Four elements of observational learning
  • Attention
  • Retention
  • Production
  • Motivation and Reinforcement
