Abstract

Blended learning,a popular approach in English language teaching that combines face-to-face instruction with online learning,presents challenges in China due to the diverse student population and unique cultural factors. Moreover,practitioners about how to implement non-culturally-relevant western-developed BLMs adds to the difficulties.To address these challenges,this conceptual paper proposes an eclectic blended learning model (EBLM) specifically designed for Chinese university English classrooms,integrating face-to-face instruction,online learning,and autonomous learning.The face-to-face instruction component includes traditional classroom teaching and interactive activities,while the online learning component utilizes digital resources and tools to support learning outside the classroom.The autonomous learning component emphasizes learner autonomy and encourages students to take responsibility for their own learning.This paper uses the ADDIE Model as the methodological framework and outlines five phases:(1)Analysis Phase,which reviews relevant literature on BLMs and the need for an EBLM(2)Design Phase,which describes the proposed EBLM(3)Development Phase,which establishes the validity and reliability of the model and develops EBLM-based lesson plans(4)Implementation Phase,which explains how the lessons are put into practice(5)Evaluation Phase,which describes how quantitative and qualitative data are collected to assess the applicability and effectiveness of the EBLM.
