This chapter discusses the use of logbooks against the background of this chapter's author's previous attempts to get teachers to implement learner autonomy in the EFL classroom. In order to do so, the chapter describes a small survey carried out in 1993. The discussion describes how school teachers wanting to develop learner autonomy in their classes can be introduced to the use of logbooks; and it gives examples of the actual use of logbooks in an autonomous classroom, showing how learners become actively engaged in their own learning through using logbooks in a way that supports individuality and encourages autonomous language learning. Finally, it reflects on future aspects in connection with the use of logbooks in the work towards promoting and encouraging learner autonomy in language learning classrooms.
