Bandura, Ross, and Ross: Observational Learning and the Bobo Doll
Artino, Anthony R., Jr.
Online Submission
Since the publication of their seminal article entitled, "Transmission of Aggression Through Imitation of Aggressive Models" (Bandura, Ross, & Ross, 1961), the work of Albert Bandura and his co-authors has had an immeasurable impact on the field of psychology, in general, and educational psychology, more specifically. The purpose of this report is to describe, in brief, Albert Bandura's major contributions to the field of educational psychology. Although Bandura's contributions are vast by any measure, this paper focuses on his work with social modeling and observational learning. The report includes a short biography of Bandura's academic life, followed by an overview of the research article that launched his prolific career and a review of his social learning theory. The paper ends with a discussion of Bandura's enduring legacy, including a summary of his major contributions to the field of educational psychology and an abbreviated list of the doctoral students he has trained and colleagues he has influenced. (Contains 2 tables.)
