Continuing the legacy of the seniors before them as well as part of the fulfilment of the coursework for SIW505-Epistemology and Islamic Tasawwur, MISDEV'15 (ISDEV Postgraduate by Mixed-Mode) have successfully organised an empowering program aimed at the grass root level of the Ban Nua community in Thailand named Socio-Academic Laboratory – Ban Nua 6.0 (MASA@Ban Nua 6.0).
The 3 days-2 nights programme was held from 13 until 15 November 2015 with a total of 66 ISDEV members participated including RISDEV (ISDEV Postgraduate by Research Mode) students and lecturers.

Besides having informal activities, there were also an academic programme consisting of “Dialog Tasawur Pembangunan Komuniti Islam Ban Nua". The dialogue were discussed by two panels, Dr. Wisoot Lateh@Tobrani (the Imam of Ban Nua) and Ustaz Mohamad Muhaimin Mohamad Zaki (MISDEV’15 student) while Dr. Mohd Shukri Hanapi served as Moderator for the dialogue session.

With the ending of the dialogue session, MASA@Ban Nua 6.0 also came to an end. From all of the organised activities, the participants learned that the programme has further strengthened the ukhuwwah between the Ban Nua community, through several initiatives such as in the areas of knowledge sharing and cooperative ownership, management and improvement of mini library, sports and youth culture, and of course learning the Thai language too.

Indeed, MASA@Ban Nua 6.0 represents the commitment of ISDEV and the Ban Nua community to forge closer ties that have been consistently renewed and strengthened annually for the past 5 years. Dr. Wisoot Lateh expressed his hope that ISDEV and Ban Nua community will continue to organise such programme in the future for the sake of Ban Nua Muslim community, ISDEV students as well as Islam.
