It your site partner should understand your obligations for the class, as well as what to expect from you in the project. Make sure they are aware of deadlines, what is expected for the length of the project and your schedule.
Make sure to meet the site partner's expectations: The site partner is counting on you for publishable material, so don't let them down. Discuss with them what they need from you and do your best to deliver what they ask. This will make the experience beneficial for both you and your site partner.
Make sure to agree on the most effective and convenient method of communication: Some site partners are easier to reach by phone, others by email, and some by meeting in person. Discuss this with your site partner at the first meeting and agree on what works best for both of you.
Stay in contact with your site partner: Don't let them forget about the project! Many site partners have hectic schedules and very busy semesters. It will be up to you to maintain the lines of communication and keep them updated on the project.
