Prof Papanastasiou taught Econ 2GG3 (consumer choice and similar stuff) when I took it in fall 2017. It turned out to be about my least favourite econ course so far, partly because I didn't find the subject matter to be particularly interesting. Also the prof has a moderate accent, not too hard to understand, but he did not speak very loudly, so I had to concentrate to catch what he was saying. Also his writing was small and hard to read (for me anyway). It didn't help that my class before the 2GG3 course was on the far side of the campus, so I usually got in late and had to sit at the back of the lecture room. Also, the prof did not provide regular outline notes on Avenue to Learn to help follow along with the lectures. I have heard a couple of other people make similar comments.
BTW, if you decide to take 3Z03, I still have the text book from last year (Health Economics, Jeremiah Hurley, First Ed), which I want to sell.
I am enrolled for 3Q03 (Econ of Aging) in Sept, which sounds interesting.
Hope this helps.
