Introduction

IPCORE, which initially began as INTERNATIONAL POSTGRADUATE COLLOQUIUM ON RESEARCH IN EDUCATION (IPCORE), is jointly organised by School of Educational Studies, Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) and Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia (UPI) since 2012. It is held annually, in which both institutions organize it in alternate years. With the intense and rigorous development in educational research, USM and UPI strongly believe that IPCORE's status should be elevated from a colloquium to a conference, and thus, give more prominence to this important educational research event in the Asia-Pacific region. As such, IPCORE 2017 welcomes participation of postgraduate students from universities all around the world and benefit from the extensive sharing and exchanges of current and innovative knowledge, ideas and thoughts in education and educational research.
