Source code plagiarism

A recent Turnitin Blog post discusses source code plagiarism, where students may copy computer code and submit it as their own work. The article makes the valid point that whilst this type of collaboration is actively encouraged in the software development industry this is not acceptable in coursework where individual learning is assessed. Have your students been confused about this apparent inconsistency and how have you addressed this in your conversations with them to clarify your expectations from them in their assessed work?
