Took 2019/20 Sem B.
Easy score. Totally new to economics, didn't attend a single class, and didn't need to either. Lecture slides explain the concept very well.
But you don't get a single mark released ever, for anything. And every single thing is lined up in the last month, which can be tough.
Penalty to not write a progress report & give presentation, but no such marks for them.

GE2258, for me, is an excellent course! I took it in sem A 2019/20.
1) You have to complete the homework (which related to the lecture) each week. The homework is a multiple-choice question (around 5-6 items per week). Then select one answered the question to explain within 200-300 words.
2) The group project is fantastic. The topic is free to choose from. The only issue that students would remind is trying hard to apply the information from the lecture to explain your selected problem.

P.s. Prof. Ho is very nice and always encourages students to having critical thinking on the samples. If you are looking for someone who has high empathy, Prof. Ho will not make you disappoint :)

As this is a new GE course, its assessment and workload is dynamic and changeable
2 500-word essays about interesting economic topics, also have to do one presentation for the first essay (about 10 mins). Students have to find good topics themselves like why brides always buy their wedding dresses but not only rent them.
1 group project for a bigger topic like the Trade War
1 group homework, easy, about 10 questions
Have to submit 1-page reflection every week (you can make it double space, copy and paste sentences from slides and websites)
Final exam! But we can bring 2 cheat sheets, sooooo easy, no calculation lol

Good Teamwork is the most important thing! Remember that CB students cannot register this course, no chur students in this course hahahah

B+

Course is a bit boring in the beginning. Exam was easy. Most of the important classes are on very basic game theory. No math background needed (I have none). I got a B+ because I kept forgetting to submit Econ Journals so I am satisfied.
