Logging is turned on/off under System or User settings.

 

To turn on logs for your modules go to Options -> User Settings -> Edit User Settings

 

Under the Default tab you can check 'Override System Settings' and give a directory for your logs to be written.

If you mean workflow when you say module, then you can check to make sure you are generating logs first by going to the toolbar and navigating to Options>User Settings > Edit User Settings. Half way down there it will display the logging directory if you have logs. There is one caveat to this and that is macros, if you have Macros you need to navigate to the Runtime options in the workflow configuration and at the bottom of the menu activate "Show All Tools that Write Output". If you would like the most recent log you can generate a workflow using the Directory tool (add your logging directory within the the directory tool configuration a descending sort and it will give you logs in order. I am working on a workflow to parse them and email me information when an error has occured throughout the day.
