In my histology class for (mostly) college seniors, I now try to emphasize learning those specific qualities (follow directions, pay close attention to detail, and communicate well), as well as the subject. It is amazing how often, when you specify to "label only 4 structures" or "provide 2 complete sentences to explain" or "follow this format in a report," students will not do this!
