Globally, the Covid-19 pandemic has created severe disruptions to our everyday lives, and these include new challenges confronted by the research process. In a field that has a longstanding interest in engaging with practice and practitioners, safe distancing measures and lockdowns mean that it is more difficult to get close to both. The purpose of this workshop is therefore to bring together researchers in Construction Management research to share experiences and ideas on how we can overcome Covid-19 disruptions to our research practice. This is also a moment for us to rethink our conventional methods (e.g. surveys and interviews that inform case study research) to search for novel and creative ways of addressing our research questions in the field.
Please find below a summary of the day, and recordings of the presentations which the presenters have allowed us to share.
