Saudi Minister of Education Dr. Hamad bin Mohammed Al Al-Sheikh has visited the Center for Curriculum Redesign (CCR) in Boston and met the founder and Chairman of the Center’s Board of Directors, Charles Fadel, as part of his tour of American universities and research centers, the Saudi Press Agency reported Friday.

The two parties reviewed support for aspects of cooperation between the Ministry of Education and the CCR in the US in the fields of curriculum development and continuous review, SPA said.

They also discussed raising learning levels in line with successful global best practices, national development objectives, and the Human Capability Development Program, SPA said.

The meeting focused on identifying the Center's independent curricula development, design, and review policies.

Al-Sheikh and Fadel also reviewed the Center's vision in setting curricula development strategies, policies, and strategies for curricula in public and university education, as well as the Center's practical framework for the map of learner skills in the twenty-first century, SPA added.
