Abstract

Colleges and universities in China have been bent on remolding the existing unitary teacher-centered education mode and enhancing students' individualized and autonomous learning with the help of multimedia and cyber technology in order to meet the College English Curriculum Requirements instituted by the Ministry of Education in 2004. Admittedly Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) has shed some light on the enhancement of individualized and autonomous learning. Yet a lot more work needs to be done to make it truly efficient and effective. This paper, taking X University in Shanghai as an example, investigates how reciprocal learning can be integrated into the design and delivery of various activities in EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teaching and explores how EFL teachers can formalize, encourage and make explicit reciprocal learning. With consideration of such practical issues as assessment and planning, it may be valuable in optimizing EFL teaching in the E-learning environment.
