Implications of Bandura's Observational Learning Theory for a Competency Based Teacher Education Model.
Hartjen, Raymond H.
Albert Bandura of Stanford University has proposed four component processes to his theory of observational learning: a) attention, b) retention, c) motor reproduction, and d) reinforcement and motivation. This study represents one phase of an effort to relate modeling and observational learning theory to teacher training. The problem of this study is the development of a) a methodology for deriving component behaviors of a teaching skill from an array of models of that skill videotaped in the natural classroom setting, and b) a methodology for developing a discriminative observation scale based on the derived component. The specific study skill on which this study was based is the oral story reading behavior of preschool children. Teachers were videotaped while reading two stories to a group of preschool children; experts from the field of child development rated the instances of oral story reading behavior on a seven-point scale of effective and ineffective behavior. Nine teacher trainees, trained in the use of the discriminative observation derived from the experts' work, rated the instances, and the scale was revised. (In the concluding section, the implications of this study for competency-based teacher education are discussed.) (JA)
