Albert Bandura's Theory
Behaviorism is the school of psychological thought which deals with observable behavioral acts that can be described objectively (D.P. Schultz, & S.E. Schultz, 2004). Founded by John Watson, Behaviorism has evolved since its beginnings. Today a cognitive aspect has been added to behaviorism through the research and ideas of Albert Bandura.
Albert Bandura, born on December 4, 1925 in Alberta, Canada, has been grouped with other behaviorists of his time, such as B.F. Skinner and Julian Rotter. However, Bandura’s ideas are unique. Growing up, he was always a determined student. After graduating high school, he attended the University of British Columbia where he completed his undergraduate work. He then attended the University of Iowa for his Ph.D (C.G. Boeree, 1998). It was during his doctoral education that he became interested in behaviorism and learning theory. Currently, Albert Bandura is working as a professor at Stanford University in northern California. He began working at Stanford University after receiving his Ph.D and has been there since 1953 (Albert Bandura, n.d.).
