Change can be viewed as an evolutionary process in which the educators and their organisations are co-evolving with digital technologies (Davis, Eickelmann, & Zaka, 2013) and sometimes the co-evolution is stimulated by a shock that speeds changes in behaviour of the organisation as well as its staff and students. This paper presents the emerging findings in a case study of one College of Education that was impacted by seismic events in New Zealand. Documentary analysis and an interview of two staff indicate that evolution was prompted and has been sustained to enable the College to become more resilient. For example, with the adoption of a lecture capture system and also a move away from physical of assignments mailed to the college into online assessment managed through the LMS. This evolutionary process will be later evaluated though the generic model of organisational resilience by Resilient Organisations (2012).
