If your instructor suspects you of academic misconduct, she or he will request to meet with you as the beginning of the investigation process. During this meeting, your instructor will explain why she or he believes you may have committed academic misconduct and will share the evidence they have. They will then give you time during the meeting to respond and provide your perspective on the matter.
If your instructor concludes that no misconduct occurred or that no penalty is warranted, this meeting will end the matter. If after this investigatory meeting they conclude that you are responsible and that a penalty is warranted, she or he will provide you with a letter detailing your sanction.
