ANSWER:

Step 1 of 3

Learning refers to the relatively permanent change in behavior that arises as a result of experience. John B. Watson, the father of Behaviorism stated that learning results in behavioral changes. Behaviorists define learning in four types: the law of effect (Edward Thorndike), classical conditioning (Ivan Pavlov), operant conditioning (B.F. Skinner), and observation learning (Albert Bandura).
