"You can observe a lot by watching"
I am feeling a bit swamped right now with working so I am lazy to write an actual full length post. Vicarious learning can be defined as a change in behavior due to the experience of observing a model (Paul Chance).
I pose this question to you: How much of our learning is based upon what we observe in others? What do you believe to be a more effective teacher: actual experience or watching others' experiences? Which is more practical?
There are no right or wring answers, I simply would love to see your insights and beliefs. I will try to reply to your responses as best I can!
