What is the previous knowledge that the student uses to internalize the new knowledge and how does he translate it into the final work of the ergonomics course and in his professional performance? How does he explain the unconscious or poorly verbalized ideas about what he did in the field? When we train our engineering students we do not expect them to become ergonomists but we understand that ergonomics is a very interesting way to transform a work situation, that they should multiply the need to apply ergonomics in the workplace and during this process we expect they modify their approach to the problem. We have worked with three conceptual frameworks
