|Title:||Vicarious Reinforcement||Contributor(s):||Malouff, John Michael (author); Rooke, Sally Erin (author)||Publication Date:||2008||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/2626||Abstract:||Vicarious Reinforcement occurs when (a) an individual observes another person (a model) behave in a certain way and experience a consequence perceived as desirable by the observer, and (b) as a result, the observer behaves as the model did. For example, suppose a shy child at school observes another student being praised for speaking up in class. The observed student is the reinforced model. If the shy child would like to be praised by the teacher and therefore personally speaks up in class in the future, vicarious reinforcement has occurred. Educators commonly use vicarious reinforcement to shape the behavior of students.||Publication Type:||Entry In Reference Work||Source of Publication:||Encyclopedia of Educational Psychology, v.2, p. 1000-1002||Publisher:||Sage Publications||Place of Publication:||Thousand Oaks, United States||ISBN:||9781412916882||Field of Research (FOR):||170103 Educational Psychology||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||970117 Expanding Knowledge in Psychology and Cognitive Sciences||HERDC Category Description:||B1 Chapter in a Scholarly Book||Other Links:||http://www.sage-ereference.com/educationalpsychology/
