- Review this week’s Learning Resources on theory development, research, and Bandura’s bobo doll experiment.
- Consider how research informs theory development and, in particular, Bandura’s social learning theory.
- Identify the limitations of the bobo doll experiment and think about potential studies that could be conducted to address the limitations.
- Review several studies that interest you from the APA’s Research in Action web page. Consider how these practical applications could also inform theory.
Post a response to the following:
Explain how research informs theory development using the bobo doll experiment as an example. Then, select one of the limitations of the study (listed on the Bobo Doll Experiment website) and briefly describe a study that could address that limitation.
Note: Support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources and any additional sources you identify using both in-text citations and references. It is strongly recommended that you include proper APA format and citations.
